It has taken a long time for the taxonomic dust to settle after the enthusiastic plant hunting of the 19th Century in Central Asia, and yellow forms of T.linifolia were classed until recently as a separate species T. batalinii. The flower buds nestling like a jewel amongst the foliage, open in May and then rise up on 10” stems as wide sulphur yellow cups with outer petals touched with burnt orange.

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 tulip species is special in appearing much later than the rest with gem like bright red flowers in late May and even into June. It is rare in the bulb trade hence the price, but is excellent at naturalizing in shady borders, and around shrubs. When established it seeds itself freely.

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.
