The Species Tulip or Wild Tulip, sometimes called the Botanical Tulip, is an amazingly diverse group found growing in the wild areas of Europe & Central Asia.

The Wild or Species Tulip

There has been a resurgence of interest in species tulips, going back to the "unimproved" forms of our garden flowers. They are best adapted to their native mountain gorges and rocky slopes, but many are suitable for pot cultivation or as rockery plants and are becoming more readily available from commercial suppliers.

Although species tulips are generally much smaller than their bolder garden hybrids, they are far from dull.
