Tulipa saxatalis

Tulipa saxatilis is originally from Crete, Rhodos and through to Southern Turkey where it is found on rocky outcrops as well as open field.

So when we think of Crete we think warm Mediteranean summers, and this is true, however Creet does have cold winters, it snows, so a cool winter is needed, or you may have to dig the bulbs and give them some time in cooler.

Open lilac pink flowers with a vivid yellow centre, sometinmes onw flower and up to three for the larger bulbs.
