We think that the simple form of Tulipa batalinii makes it a most attractive species tulip.
To be really correct we should perhaps call this, Tulipa linifolia (Batalinii Group).
Originally from Soviet Central Asia, Turkestan to Iran. Like many tulips its native habitat is on a steep hillside, so a free draining sunny position is best.
A few article suggest that this is an easy species to naturalise into the garden, and this is true in climates where you get a cold winter. In warmer areas you may not find this so.
