Comment

Upright Stemless Form. Miscellaneous Group Hybrid tulip suitable for a rock garden. Keep dry in summer dormancy.

"Tulipa batalinii is a native of Soviet Central Asia where it grows on stony hillsides. It is considered by Brian Mathew to be a form of Tulipa linifolia. It is one of the best small tulips for the rock garden, available in several named forms. I like the strongly undulate leaves." from Pacific Bulb Society.

"Tulipa batalinii is a species of tulip native to Iran and Turkestan. The plant is about 15 cm (6 inches) in height. It flowers in spring, usually around mid-April." from Wikipedia.

"Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Best in somewhat gritty soils. Plant bulbs 5-6” (12.5-15 cms) deep in fall. Flowers will only open with sun, and the intensity of the sun determines how far they open. Remove flower stems promptly after bloom to prevent seed formation, but leave foliage in place until it yellows. This species tulip will establish itself in the garden and perform well over a longer period of years than most hybrid tulips." from Missouri Botanical Garden.
