Please help identify this tulip

Posted by megzee 5 (My Page) on

Last fall, I purchased some tulip bulbs that were supposed to be Tulipa humilis 'Alba Coerulea Oculata'. I instead received some bulbs that developed into short red tulips. They just opened today, so they bloom pretty late for tulips. I'm not an expert on bulbs of any kind, but I would like to know which variety this is. Could anybody help me out with this?

It looks to me like it is linifolia. See Link below.

The pictures at the link sure looks like my tulips. Thanks!

RE: Please help identify this tulip

yep, definately T.linifolia. What a swizz - alba coerulea are soooo expensive too. Much more so than linifolia.
