Botanical Tulips

("Specie tulips / Rockgarden tulips")


It is generally assumed that about 150 different wild species exist in an area running roughly from Central Asia to Spain and Portugal.

Planting Tips:

Technically speaking the term 'Botanical tulips' is not correct but for ease of reference we have grouped these low-growing tulips together under this name. They do not at all look like 'traditional' tulips: usually their foliage is minimal and very narrow & spinley. However, of all the tulips currently on the market, they do naturalize the best in pretty much every climate zone. Plant them in groups of 15-25 and you will be amazed by the colorful show that these cute little tulips will give year after year.
