Tulipa humilis 'Violacea black base'

Tulipa humilis 'Violacea black base'
Common name tulip
Family liliaceae
Life cycle perennial bulb
Flowers magenta/black (early spring)
Size 4"
Light full sun
Cultural notes well-drained garden soil

The earliest tulip to bloom in our garden. Stays very low to the ground, so needs a position right up front. A delight when it first emerges, even before most of our daffodils.


We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
