6711 Little Stars Rockgarden Species Tulip Mix
Species Tulips are the original wild tulips from the center of tulip diversity in central Asia; together with their cultivars which still have a “wild” look, they form Tulip Division 15. All our stock is nursery-propagated from commercial sources and is not collected in the wild.
Once established with good drainage, these tend to perennialize or naturalize, unlike many of the big hybrid tulips. Most are not tall, showy or formal, but they have their own halfling charms.
