Description

Tulipa clusiana, the Lady Tulip, is native to Iran extending east to Afghanistan, Pakistan and Indian administered Jammu and Kashmir, a range that is further south of the tulip-rich terrain of the Koppe Dagh, Pamir Alai and the Western Himalayas. Perhaps it is for this reason, that it able to tolerate more heat than is usual for most Tulips. A strikingly beautiful species tulip with delicate ornate flowers, Tulipa clusiana opens wide in the sun with star-shaped petals. The bulbs have tufty hairs from the apex. Recent taxonmic changes have meant that the various colour and chromosome variations of Tulpa clusiana are now all classed together. The form that we offer here is the yellow and red form that most people know as either Tulipa clusiana var chrysantha or sometimes as the synonym, Tulipa chrysantha.
