At the Botanical Garden of Gothenburg, Sweden
A single flower but beautiful.
Blooming April 23rd in Raleigh, NC
Tulipa acuminata..probably to small..I've saved it from thrash in 2007...these were leftover bulbs from a local gardensupplier..bulbs were in bad condition but I got them for free..
T. acuminata does'nt keep its flower long 'in a bud' like other tulips do..it showes its flower at very premature stage..it grows from tiny and green into bigger and more colourful I've experienced...
