Lady Tulip, Species Tulip
Lady tulip is a herbaceous bulb native to Central Asia and naturalized across southern Europe. In spring, it bears elegantly pointed white or yellow flowers with vertical bands of red, purple, or pink on its outer petals/tepals. Several distinct cultivars are available, such as 'Cynthia', which has butter yellow flowers with rose marks on the outer tepals.
Provide this tulip with full sun and average to fertile soil with good drainage. It is one of the few tulips that naturalizes well and thrives and flowers in coastal California, the southeastern United States, and other areas with mild winters. Use in rock gardens, mixed borders, or naturalistic plantings.
