I should like to know your expert opinion on the origin of our
cultivated tulips ( excluding fosteriana and gregii/kaufmanniana
hybrids). The main question is are they derived from a single or from
more species. It is harsh to say but there is not much use in rewriting
what has been published in old herbals starting with Clusius I did read
them nearly all. However a new fresh thought based on observations would
be most welcome.
