Product Description

Obviously a native of Iran (formerly Persia), this beauty has been culitvated in Europe since the early 1800s, according to "The Genus Tulip" by expert Sir Alfred Daniel Hall. Like other species tulips, it is very small, with jewel-toned colors. Like the others, it is dependably perennial and very useful for early color in a rock garden, in the front of a border, meadow, or any spot where its brilliant beauty can be appreciated. The bulbs are small, so planting takes just minutes. And you'll enjoy these little beauties during early spring every year from the day you plant them. Height: 4-6". Naturalizes, perennializes and self-seeds.

There are about 150 species of tulips that occur in the wild from Central Asia all the way to Spain and Portugal. Most are native to rocky, arid regions east of Europe. It is hard to believe that these little flowers, more the size of crocus, are the original forms of the big flashy hybridized tulips we all know and love. But to any wildflower gardener who looks close, the brilliant colors and even the petal shapes and other characteristics are there. They are all really botanical heirlooms in the truest sense, and deserve a place in every garden.
