Positive coriaceous On Jan 31, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

The flower is a soft bright lemon yellow, not a strident gold. Like other Fosteriana hybrids, it's also very early, in daffodil season.

Like other Fosteriana hybrids, this naturalizes well in Boston Z6a, where few tulip hybrids last more than two years.
