Wordless Wednesday 15th March 2017: Tulipa turkestanica


  1. Gorgeous! Is this tulip usually open this early? It could be another addition to my spring border, if so!

    1. Yes, this is the right time for it to be flowering. It's the smaller species tulip, so best at the front of the border.

  2. This is one of the best tulips for bees in my garden. When the sun shines, so does Tulipa turkestanica. It's a valuable and lovely plant.
