Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003.

Tulipa kaufmanniana Heart's Delight - Waterlily tulip

This post, 'Tulipa kaufmanniana 'Heart's Delight' - Waterlily tulip' was originally uploaded and written by Tyra at the blog Tyra's Garden http://waxholm.blogspot.com/

Tulipa kaufmanniana 'Heart's Delight'
also called
The Waterlily tulip


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. Read more about my darling tulips in these posts:

What sweet flowers!

Jan said...

These are lovely tulips. I love looking at pictures of them because I don't grow them in my garden. The heat comes on too early, and they don't last. Thanks for showing some I am not familiar with.

Always Growing

That is ever so interesting about the water lily look. I am always happy to learn something new and this is it. Thanks!:)

Jan (Thanks For 2 Day) said...

The book looks very pretty and I'm sure it's interesting and informative, as well! I love the look of these tulips:) Thank you for sharing-it makes me want to get some of these lovely flowers.

Gail said...

These are delightful tulips~~Maybe this year I will finally remember to get them! Don't you love Paghat's pages! She always has the best information...I will stop by there to see what she has to say.

Have a good weekend,

Gail

Jättesöta tulpaner - dessa små är även i min smak.

mvh, Anja

Ruben said...

Botaniska tulpaner är fina. Dessutom kommer de tillbaka år efter år, ja de kan till och med sprida sig! Trevlig helg, Tyra! /Ruben

andré said...

Visst är de tjusiga! Jag har också några botaniska tulpaner (fortfarande, hoppas jag) och gillar dem mycket. Fin bild!

Randi said...

Helt bedårande små skönheter!
Läcker bild.
Kram Randi

Lillebeth said...

Underbara! Längtar till våren!

Sunita said...

A tulip which looks like a waterlily? What a great deal! Two very pretty flowers in one :D
Doesnt it remind you just a little bit of Zephyranthes too?

Anna said...

What little beauties. Will explore all the links later. Enjoy your weekend Tyra :)

Jätte söt tulpan. /isis/

lareine said...

they are truly delightful with their shape and color! they not only warms the heart, but also evokes a feeling of serenity...

maybe they should be called lilytulip (a combination of lily, tulip and "liliput" --- the land of small people in Gulliver's travels in reference to these tulips' size)...

Vero said...

De är jättesöta!

Trevlig helg Moursch!

Ci vediamo al concerto!

Un bacio

Kathleen said...

Beautiful and unusual tulips Tyra. I don't have any experience with them but I'll have to read up now. Don't tell me these are already blooming in your garden?? If so, I'm jealous! I haven't ever visited "Paghat the Ratgirl" so I'll have to pop over and check it out. I hope you have a nice weekend too.

Roses and Lilacs said...

Absolutely beautiful. I planted some tulips last fall but not that one. I have to add that to my wish list;)

Yolanda Elizabet said...

I had them in my old garden, aren't they absolutely delightful?

Kram, Yolanda

Så fina! De påminner verkligen lite om näckrosor.
Ha en trevlig helg!

Hjärtat Mitt said...

Vilken sötnos!
Är det såna som sprider sig oxå, för det skulle man ju verkligen vilja att den gör.
Ha en skön helg!

Kram Mari i Marieholm

Roses and stuff said...

Åh, vilken liten sötnos! Botaniska tulpaner tycker jag om; den här var verkligen jättesöt och hoppade direkt till önskelistan!
Ha en fortsatt skön helg!
Kram Katarina

Annika Christensen said...

Fin fin tulpan som man läntar efter just nu.
Ha det gott

Karin A said...

Det är verkligen en underbart vacker tulpan! Trevlig bidrag till blommig fredag. Ha en skön helg! Kram Karin

Med fingrarna i (j)orden said...

I like very much! Kaufamaniatulpaner är verkligen fina, så olika de tulpaner vi nu har i buketterna. Jag gillar att de öppnar sig helt, nästan lite för mycket.

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Thank you so much my friend for all your lovely comments and a warm welcome to all the new faces.

We have to wait some 40 days until springs arrives, it does sound like a lot but you know times flies when you're having fun.

Take care and I wish you all a lovely Sunday.

xoxo Tyra

Moas said...

Underbara är dessa Kaufmannia tulpaner har en mer gulare variant.. som är så tacksam och breder ut sig, kommer inte ihåg namnet jus nu men som små gräddgula solar när solen lyser.. =)Ha det gott.. Monica

perennialgardener said...

A pretty little tulip Tyra. Thanks for sharing.

Hanneles paradis said...

Nån kaufmannia har jag också..

Weeping Sore said...

Lovely tulips! I can see why they're nicknamed Water Lily Tulips. I'll have to settle for pictures since tulips don't seem to like my hot dry summers.

Karen - An Artist's Garden said...

These Tulips are a delight Tyra - Oh I am looking forward to having Tulips back in the Garden, not too long to wait now.

Connie said...

I love the open look and delicate coloring of these tulips...just lovely!

Monica said...

Vilken sötnos till tulpan :) och Jag tycker det är jättebra att det finns så naturtrogna Orkideér att pryda palntan med när den inte blommar!

sweet bay said...

I love the species tulips. I will have to try some of those. They'll need protecting from the hungry voles though!

I love your greenhouse. It's absolutely beautiful.

And I love the tulips in the gravel! I bet they love it there, and get protection from hungry critters.

Kerri said...

I love your 'Heart's Delight' tulips, Tyra. I must find some to plant in my garden.
Enjoy planting your seeds and watching them grow. How lucky you are to have a nice sunny verandah to keep them on.
We have chicory growing wild all over the place around here, including in our lawn where it's not so welcome :) I love the pretty blue flower.
We can see bare ground here and the snow is patchy. Still cold though.
