Tulipa sylvestris – wild tulip
£5.00 – £12.00
Yellow, scented blooms in spring
The wild tulip. A beautiful, yellow, scented hardy tulip that will naturalise and come back year after year if conditions are good.
The wild tulip, not really native to the UK but it is thought it has spread and naturalised from the South East across the country in the early 20th Century.
Light: full sun, partial shade
Care: Plant in late autumn in well-drained soil that will dry out in the summer. Plant three times as deep as the bulb is tall – planting at this depth will help protect from summer heat and allow the tulip to return each year. Tulipa sylvestris doesn’t mind a little shade.
