Not surprisingly that this tulip species was nicknamed "King of Tulips"- its large, bright red flowers of surprisingly perfect form of "double cup" before opening subported by marvellous leaves with purple marbling, dotting or striping surpass everything seen in tulips. Offered are seedlings of forms collected wild in Kara-Tau Mountains, Kazahstan during my first Central Asian trips.

Some botanists regard it as synonym of T. praestans but I nowhere in wild saw the last with flowers other than red. T. heweri has yellow flowers nicely shaded orange on outside. My stock originates from collection made in Afghanistan in the seventies of last century and carefully was multiplied by seeds. No intermediates with T. praestans were observed. Now it is not more possible to revisit its area if you are not with suicidal intentions.

This beautiful form of Tulipa humilis was collected at altitude near 3000 m in Iranian Golestan. I regard it as one of best forms of this variable species - by colour, vigour and increasing rate. Even in wild it splits, forming clumps - see 3rd picture.

Flowers white with a large steel-blue centre. Sweetly fragrant. It is not the commercial stock which sometimes appear in catalogues, but distinct plants, carefully multiplied from few bulbs collected wild in Iran from population where only white flowering plants are growing. Very few and of exceptional beauty.

Lovely lemon-yellow flowers, with the outer tepals stained crimson on the exterior and with a hint of sage-green at the base characterizes this beautiful species collected by me in S Kazahstan near border with China. Inside there is no basal blotch below the yellow. The flower sits over two to four, erect, deeply channelled, glaucous leaves, on some 20-25cm tal stem. Tulipa iliensis likes a well-drained, sunny spot and has been perfectly hardy and happy even in outside garden.

It is very beautiful, narrow Crimean endemic, regarded by some botanists as synonymous with Tulipa biflora, what certainly isn’t truth. It is growing wild in Karadag Nature reserve and with the kind help of Ukrainian botanists I had opportunity to visit this place and collect few bulbs shortly before Russia occupied this territory of Ukraine, so closing it for further researches of Western botanists.

Stems up to 20cm high. Leaves three, linear to lanceolate, strongly glaucous. Flowers usually solitary in the wild but sometimes two in cultivation, about 5cm long, brightest red, with a shining black basal blotch. Originaslly was collercted in Uzbekisdtan at Timurlan gate. Not very easy and not usable for outside garden (at least here) but so beautiful and makes so splendid pots, that worth to try! Very limited sdtock.

Some botanists regards it as synonym of Tulipa humilis. Of course, it belongs to this group, but is very distinct by its red flower colour, unknown in other localities where Tulipa humilis sensu lato is growing. Famous botanist Per Wendelbo, who discovered it in North Iraq province of Kurdistan, described this species as Tulipa kurdica.

There are several tulip species regarded as synonyms of T. sylvestris, but this one from Ukraine is very floriferous and of a smaller habit making compact bright yellow blotches in the garden; good for pots, too.

A relative of T. turkestanica and T. bifloriformis. However, it well differs from these in its very dwarf outward appearance, intensively crinkled, ad-pressed to soil leaves. Main feature for separating from other similar species is long neck between ovary and stigma, by this resembling Orythia - since its name. One of my favourites. From high altitudes over valley of river Sangardak in S. Uzbekistan (ARJA-9814 - locus classicus).

This beautiful tulip was collected by Arnis Seisums in Kirghizia. The flowers are brilliant, glowing scarlet- to orange-red sometimes with a jet-black centre, sometimes with a yellow centre. At flowering the plant is around 20-25 cm high, and it carries a flower with a diameter of 5-8 cm. Afterwards the leaves elongate and these are decorative, with a glaucous surface and an undulate edge. It is true species, different from plants offered by Dutch nurseries.

One of the real glories of Iranian mountains, actually it shocked me by size of flowers and long stems of this beauty, when I for the first time saw it blooming on rocky slopes and in small valleys of Iranian mountains. Only “cabinet botanists”, who never worked in wild can regard it as conspecific with Tulipa biflora, growing in Kazahstan steppes and semi-deserts. May be “polychroma” of commerce, can be regarded as synonymous with T. biflora, but not this Iranian beauty. Alternative opinion - it deserves own specific name. The last 3 pictures shows it in nature, in Iran where slopes and valleys covered by it makes unforgetable impression.

Tulipa praestans was collected in spiny shrub at Hodji-obi-Garm in Tadjikistan and for almost 30 years I got no one seed or offset up to I received another plant from Arnis Seisums. After cross pollination between both I got a lot of seeds and those brightest red seedlings are now offered to you.

One of the most unusual and “cream of creams” in tulips. Usually one leaf with longitudinal crests on the upper side, for this feature separated in its own section. Flowers usually one, rarely two or three, white with pinkish tinge and yellow basal blotch and a faint pleasant scent. Only for growing indoors. I recommend planting as late as possible and stgart watering only in December.

As you can guess from the name this species almost invariably have four leaves. Flowers, when open, are purest golden yellow with the base, filaments, and anthers in the same colour. Only the sepal backs are greenish pink shaded. Flowers open wide in the sun and the outer tepals reflex forming an urn.

Considered by some to be a stablised natural hybrid between T. dubia and T. kaufmanniana which forms homogeneous populations in some parts of its range. This has large yellow to red flowers on quite short stems. The flowers are vivid, golden-yellow, orange or red. A gorgeous snowmelt plant with sumptuous in the extreme flowers that are beautifully set off by blue-green to soft green foliage. As a montane meadow species seems that it does not require annual lifting, but I am replanting all my tulips annually. Limited stock.

Although name of T. turkestanica is very well known and offered in each garden center, under this name is offered some garden selection of T. bifloriformis. I’m offering true species collected at Nuratau, Seravschan mnt. range, S Uzbekistan (ARJA-9604). Anthers usually yellow but can be yellow with black tips or blackish purple.

One more sample of the same group originally weas collected on border between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan at Zaamin where this tulip grew in narrow splits of solid rock. It was very difficult to collect few bulbs, but it was worth of efforts.

It is very similar to Tulipa systola and by some botanists regarded as synonymous to it, but the flower is held on longer stem and flowers inner base is black with or without yellow rim. Somrtimes yellow rim is so pronounced that black is on;ly as small blotch on it. About it I found following characterization: “A rock dweller that can be found on the steep cliffs of the Olang Pass (2200 m) in the Elburz Mountains, east of Tehran. You can spot the flowers from the car, but how to get there? You have to climb like a mountain goat to see them up close”. I climbed up and collected few bulbs. The total view of plant is so special, that there are no problems to separate in from allied TT. stapfii and systola. It is not easy to grow and with me it is suitable only for pots

Tulipa vvedenskyi in nature is quite uniform, bright red with beautiful shape of flowers. Very rarely can be found yellow or orange coloured individuals. The greatest variability is in shape of leaves which in best forms are nicely and intensively undulated, and in base colour of flowers which can be pure yellow, pure black or black with yellow rim of different shape. This species quite well multiplies by splitting of bulbs. Excellent for growing in open garden as well as in deep pots.

I regard this as typical T. wilsoniana and very different from T. montana. Typical wilsoniana is dwarf tulip of more or less rocky open mountain slopes. Flowers are comparatively large for length of stem, brilliant vermilion-red with pointed tips and small blackish-blue centre. Leaves undulated. Only 15 cm high. My stock originates from Arvaz, Turkmenistan Kopet-Dag. Excellent pot plant, but I grew it for many years in outside garden on very well drained sandy soil.

In nature mostly you can find red blooming individuals, but in Turkmenistan and Iran are some populations where flowers are only deep light yellow. Similar plants occur almost in each Iranian population between red ones and occasionally even orange colored can be observed (not collected as seen only in Almeh National Park). Yellow are rare and open pollinated seedlings split into yellow and red individuals, but not so if pollination is controlled and crossing with red ones is eliminated. Offered plants were collected on open rocky slope along the way dawn from Ulang pass, from the population where mostly just yellow forms were seen, shortly before locus classicus of Crocus gunae.

Genus Zagrossia was split out of Scilla by German botanist Franz Speta and belongs to those few new species which splitting from scillas was accepted by most of botanists (as well as Fessia - see higher). Zagrosia persica has long, slender racemes of bright mid-blue, starry flowers of bright mid-blue placed on long, slender racemes, each one on a long flower-stalk. Flowering progresses up the stem as the buds open and the total time in bloom is much longer than in the other "scillas". In nature it is growing on vernally extremely wet spots, sometimes springing out even from water, but during summer seems that need dry conditions. I'm growing it only in pots, abundantly watered up to culmionation of blooming, after that watering is gradually minimized providing dry second half of summer. I think it could be growable outside as well.
