This small species grows in the wild in Central Asia and it can grow at altitudes up to 3200m (10.500 feet). but forms from lower altitudes are easier to grow in the garden. It is best grown on a rock garden or the edge of a border in a gravel garden.
Species (Miniature) Tulips are the best tulips available for naturalizing. They like well-drained soil. Excellent for the rockgarden or an eye-catching spot in the border! Species (Miniature) Tulips have an height of 6-12 Inches. Bulb Size: 5/7 cm
In addition to the large cultivated tulips, there are also what are known as ‘botanical tulips’. These tulips are particularly suitable for garden planting since they can remain undisturbed in the soil after flowering and will emerge again next year!
Botanical tulips are also referred to as ‘wild tulips’ or ‘dwarf tulips’ due to their low height. Their height is one of the factors that makes them perfect for planting in a flower bed as well as in rock gardens and special little spots. With so many different varieties to choose from, they can create a real riot of colour in the garden or even in flower containers.
Over the years, botanical tulip varieties have often been awarded the ‘flower bulb of the year’ title. This says a lot about their rising popularity! The sizes of these bulbs are 6 to 10 cm. smaller than most tulip bulbs but their numbers will easily increase year after year. Botanical tulips are not just exceptionally beautiful flowers in their own right but can also be combined with other spring-blooming flowers.
These stunning tulips should be planted in the autumn. Choose a sunny spot for them, and you will be enjoying their profusion of flowers from April to June. You can also leave them undisturbed and they will pop up again the following year for another wonderful display.
