Kaufmanniana Tulips were developed from the Tulipa kaufmanniana species, which is native to Turkestan. They are some of the earliest tulips to flower. Kaufmanniana Tulips are generally very low growing (some are only 4 - 5"/10 - 12 cm tall), which makes them ideal for rock gardens and containers. If left undisturbed, they will normally return year after year and gradually multiply. text: The Plant Expert photo: Tyra
Tulipa 'Persian Pearl' or 'Eastern Star' it said Eastern star on the packet but they look more like Persian Pearl correct me if I'm wrong.
These are the really early ones the Greigii Tulipa
Greigii Tulips were developed from the Tulipa greigii species, which is native to Turkestan. Greigii Tulips are fairly short as tulips go, but the blooms are very large in proportion to the plant as a whole. They come in very bright colours, like red and yellow, and the flowers open wide in full sun, creating cup-shaped blooms that can be more than 5" (12 cm) in diameter when fully open. text: The Plant Expert photo: Tyra
Have a nice week! ....do write something it's so very nice to here from you.
.... and Dad eller Dod som du brukar kalla dej själv, jag hoppas att du får en fin dag hemma i Skåne att solen skiner på dej och att fåglarna kvittrar för det gillar du. Den svart vita flugsnapparen Ficedula h. hypoleuca som bodde i holken utanför mitt sovrumsfönster förra året är tillbaka! Visst är det kul.
