A reliable bloomer for me, even in half-day shade.
A lady tulip or candlestick tulip (Tulipa clusiana var. chrysantha) bloom in bright afternoon sunlight ... this tulip did not have to be chilled and naturalizes in my area of Texas - few do.
Blooming March 31, Raleigh NC. Returns and multiplies year after year.

A cluster of blooms
One-year old group that is multiplying well at the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens.
Emerging buds--a good tulip for Texas
A good variety for Texas
