Tulipa Pygmy (Pygmy Tulip)
This guy looks big and is acting big as well. I am not saying as I blame him as he is the only Tulip in bloom amongst 3 thousand in the garden. He is always the first. I can depend on him every year to do just this. For me he is the bench marker for Spring. I actually go out of my way to never interfere with him, and I have a marker so I never do. By the way he is only 15 cm tall !!!!!! I have some that reach 1 meter but do not tell him that!!!!!
I have another variety that is only half this guy's size but it blooms much later. I will post those in due course.....reg
