Tulipa clusiana var. chrysantha
A reliably long lived and self-propagating Tulip for warm Winter areas! Yay! Hailing from the Middle East, this eye-catching tulip with yellow blooms highlighted with luscious red accents on the outer petals starts flowering in early Spring. When planted in full sun it will open up to reveal a pristine bright yellow star held above perfectly erect gray green leaves. It will top out at about 1’ tall. Naturalizing in gardens, its offsets and stolon will produce a very fine colony over time. Perfect for borders and rock gardens. It’s best planted in clusters - so pick up a few! Prefers fertile well-drained soil and needs average water during its active season. Makes a great cut flower!
