Tulipa kaufmanniana

Family liliaceae
Life cycle hardy bulb
Flowers scarlet/yellow (April)
Size 12"
Light full sun
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

I love this tulip! Among the first ones to bloom in our gardens, it has the most amazing draw-you-in-close red and yellow color, on large flowers that stay fairly low. I purchased it from a reputable bulb purveyor as Tulipa eichleri, but a visitor to this site set me straight. Apparently, it is a Tulipa kaufmanniana variety or hybrid - it looks similar to photos I've seen of 'Scarlet Baby'. Unfortunately, further attempts at identification will be complicated by the fact that my clump has now expired. Now where did I stash those bulb catalogs....
