Tulipa sylvestris

Tuesday, March 12, 2013


Also known as the woodland or wild tulip, this fragrant, sunshine yellow flower was first recorded in Europe.  Easily naturalized in fields, it can be found mostly in the north eastern United States in hardiness zones 3-9.  Growing anywhere from 4-12", this tulip is comfortable in full sun or partial shade and grows best in well drained soils.  Blooming in mid to late spring, the wild tulip has the ability to clone itself by underground stolons, running horizontally and popping up several feet away.  These runners help this bulbous perennial to spread easily over any landscape. Ironically these woodland tulips have been slowly disappearing in the wild.
