The wind has played havoc with ours, because of their thin stems they have been well and truly battered!!

what an incredible history this flower has. It's nice to see the specie in a garden. Where did you find the bulbs? You made a trip to that part of the world a couple of years ago, did you not?

Here in the UK, there are almost twenty specialist bulb nurseries that sell it. In Canada, I found it on Tradewinds International website:

Thanks very much, Andrew! :-) I just checked availability at Tradewinds and they're out of stock! Just my luck. I need to check out Vesey's ...I know they have a million var. of tulip.
