This Blooming Friday I would like to introduce a small and pretty tulip. The tulipa kaumanniana ’Heart’s Delight'. If you are interested of tulips I found this most informative page where you can read a lot of fascinating things about these small wonders.
In The Garden of Paghat the Ratgirl visit the tulip page here
The kaufmannianas are called "waterlily type" because when fully opened on a very sunny day, they are flat & starshaped and bear a resemblance to waterlilies. They do not, of course, live in water, nor do they even require much watering, prefers moist and well-drained soil when active, and rather dry soil when dormant.
