Great! I tried it and came up with Orithyia, but Orithyea was not found. 

So, Tulipa orithyioides is named for its resemblance to members of the
genus Orithyia (which itself is now a part of Tulipa). Orithyioides means
"like Orithyia" .

Next question, please!

Is anyone out there growing either Amana edulis or Tulipa heterophylla?
