Tulipa humilis 'Violacea black base'
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.
||magenta/black (early spring)
||well-drained garden soil
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
