Unlike Howard C, who posted a pic of the straight species, my selection, 'Kolpa's Gem', is pure yellow without the peachy flush on the outer portion of the sepals. My plant is 9 years old and while it has not increased for me, it does remain a constant in my rockery. The foliage is small, narrow with a wavy edge and a lovely blue-green. Of the more choice species tulips, this one seems to do reasonably well in the garden.
