species tulips

Here are some of the little species tulips on my rock garden.  They look so delicate but are tough survivors -these are nearer the old original type tulips and make good perennials.  See them open totally as they bask in the afternoon sunshine then shyly close their petals for nightfall, conserving their energy for another day of beauty!  Some are tiny little jewels to be savored close up, but some are reasonably tall and still eye-catching when planted en masse.
