Amana edulis flowers nicely for me every year. It receives no special care
but I water it a little more than other tulips Amana Edulis is is one of
the Tulips which I do not use especially deep pots for. I have two
accessions. One is supposed to be derived from a Norman Stevens collection.
The other came from a stall at an Alpine Society show. I understand that
there are five or more species of Amana and that they reach as far west as
Japan. I would very much like to acquire some of the other forms.
I have had very little luck with Tulipa sylvestris in pots but some of its
cousins do very well for me and T beibersteiniana is a favorit of mine
