Hello, I am a new member to the site. I love your podcasts and plant database. I am in zone 6b so gardening can be a challenge. I have a bulb that I am not sure of. I didn't plant them but they come up every year. I think it is some type of hybrid tulip but I am not sure what kind. Can you help?

Thank you. Jeff

I think it looks more like Red Emperor. Compare the pictures on the data base.

Hi Paul, Thank you for the information. The distinctive yellow band around the black base indicate my species is indeed the Red Emperor or (Madame Lefeber). Thank you for your help. Jeff
