There is every chance that you, like me, love a tulip. However, there is a type of tulip which is extraordinary, beautiful, and because of their scarcity, seldom seen in British gardens. Let me explain.
In every garden you see thousands of similar-looking tulip varieties…all of which are hybrids. Yet, there are a few exclusive tulips which are pure, and have never been crossbred nor interbred. These pure tulips are called SPECIES TULIPS. Species Tulips are hard to come-by, and what is even harder to come-by, are Species Tulips which have been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
