Tulip (Tulipa batalinii 'Bright Gem')
Genus:  Tulipa
This named variety of the species has soft sulfur-yellow flowers up to 3 inches across. The spring blossoms sit 4-6 inches high, surrounded by wavy-edged, gray-green foliage that reaches 8-10 inches tall. Species tulips prefer sharp drainage and plenty of room to grow. Most do well in rock gardens, small displays, and containers.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Tulips originate in regions with cold winters and dry summers. (They require a cold treatment in order to bloom.) They are invaluable for early spring color in bedding schemes, parterres, cottage gardens, and mixed borders. This species is also suitable for rock gardens.
Care:  Provide fertile, well-drained soil in full or afternoon sun. In autumn, plant to a depth of two and a half times the height of the bulb; in regions warmer than Zone 8, bulbs will need a cold treatment (40° to 45°F for 8-10 weeks). Many tulips only last and bloom reliably for one season, but this species will naturalize.
Propagation:  Impractical for home gardeners.
Problems:  Bulb and root rot, gray mold, slugs, snails, aphids, nematodes, voles.
