Tulipa sylvestris

A 16th century heirloom, The Florentine Tulip or The Woodland Tulip, was popularized by Thomas Jefferson in his garden at Monticello. Sweetly fragrant, its elliptical, bright yellow flowers open with distinctive green exterior petals that pale to chartreuse as it matures. Often a good naturalizer, it stages a wild and wonderful garden dance. It is coveted in natural swaths in woodland borders, wild flower meadows and proper garden beds. Tulip Class: Species. Bulb size: 5 to 6 cm. April. HZ: 5-8. 8" to 12".

Tulips are The Art & Soul of Spring.
