Tulipa acuminata The Horned Tulip

£2.50£11.00

The unique and exotic shape of this tulip, with its thin pointed yellow petals, heavily streaked with red, was a sensation when it arrived in Europe at the beginning of the 19th Century from the bazaars of Istanbul. Flowering in April, it is now considered a form of Tulipa agenensis from the mountains of the Middle East.
