We often get asked for Tulipa clusiana but have always refused to stock it, since every time we try to buy some in to grow, we get sent yellow-flowered hybrids.
Finally one trusted grower has raised a true stock and we have a small number available. The origins of this are from a 1969 collection made in Kashmir for the now defunct firm of P.N. Kohli formerly of Srinagar.
The plants have white or palest pink petals, which have broad carmine-red bands on the exterior, all on 20cm stems. The centre of each flower is yellow, sometimes stained with a little blackcurrant purple. A superb plant, but, I stress, a very limited offering.
