Description

In this tulip, large white flowers are "flamed" in pink with the edges of the petals typically solid pink. Among the earliest of tulips to flower, this species has stems that are relatively short above the broad greenish-gray foliage. Plant in full sun in well-drained soils and protect from chipmunks and rabbits. When protected, they will clump up over time, producing a bouquet of flowers instead of an individual flower.
