Thanks Victor for sharing with PBS members the many photos of Tulipa species from the Tien Shan. Seeing photos of plants in habitat is such a treat, and your bounty of great Tulipa pix certainly enriches the PBS wiki photo resource. I'm particularly taken with Tulipa heterophylla. Is this species in cultivation or available from any bulb merchants that you know of? It's also great to see the wild forms of kaufmanniana and greigii... so distinct and different from the hybrids that have emerged from their involvement in hybridization over many decades. Once again I'm impressed just how wonderful and relatively unexplored the genus Tulipa is for providing rock gardens with small, eminently garden worthy plants.
