This is a good flowering selection of the Candia Tulip, a European species from Greece and Crete. From a pair or triplet of wide glossy green leaves, a 10” stem hosts lilac pink pointed petals with a clear yellow centre. Spreading by runners, something it has in common with our Wild Tulip, it increases readily where happy.

This species grows close to the ground, the star like yellow flowers with white tips appearing in late April (late for a tulip as the name implies). It is native to the mountains of Tien Shan in Central Asia where I have seen carpets of it. Here it does well in a sunny spot perhaps planted at the front of a border.

Another species from the mountains of Central Asia and easy to grow, and even spread, in the open garden here. In March and April the bulbs produce several creamy white flowers with yellow centres that stay nestled amongst shiny green foliage. Although they are relatively small, around 1” across they together make a great show, particularly when opening wide on a sunny day.

This species comes from closer to home in the hills of the Peloponnese and West Anatolia. Its flowers are cups of flaming orange-red blazing in the spring sun. Relatively tall for a species tulip, it grows to about 12” and makes an impressive display when planted in a group together.
