A gloriously fragrant species tulip that wafts its exquisite orange perfume whenever the sun causes the blooms to open wide. This plant looks stunning in the garden and the wispy foliage remains unobtrusive after the flowers fade and then quickly dies away. Said to be stoloniferous, I look forward to this beauty multiplying in my garden.
