Tulipa Sylvestris (Wild Tulip Bulbs)

Tulipa Sylvestris (Wild Tulip Bulbs)

A wild tulip perfect for naturalising

Dainty and deliciously scented, this tulip is ideal for naturalising in short grass. It is quite a vigorous plant, which can spread by underground stolons. First recorded in Bologna, in northern Italy in the 16th century, this delightful plant has now become naturalised throughout Europe where it can be found in meadows, orchards and open, rocky ground. It will thrive in full sun or light dappled shade and is quite tolerant of chalky soils.
