Dwarf rock garden tulip. Said to be a cross between T. hageri and T. aucheriana. However, each of those species is itself in question, with T. hageri thought to be a distinct garden clone of Tulipa orphanidea complex, and T. aucheriana is a dwarf rose-pink tulip thought not to be a true species but probably a clone or hybrid with T. humilis. At any rate, this has a true "species look" to it, with brilliant copper-orange flowers on 3" (7.5 cm) stems and a light fragrance. There's a bold yellow zone at the center, with striking blue-black or green-black flares at the base, and black anthers. The outside of the flower is a lighter melon color, tinged with green.
