Good source for species tulips?

Who would you buy species tulip bulbs from? I'm looking for maybe 12 bulbs each of many different species. I especially don't want bulbs with virus in them, since it will get into my lily collection. McClure and Zimmerman have lots of species, but they get iffy reviews on the Garden Watchdog website. Any ideas?

You might try the link below. They have several different ones and a lot are sold in quantities of 10 bulbs. I believe they have a good reputation, but you might want to also check Watchdog.


Here is a link that might be useful: John Scheeper's Species tulips

Brent & Becky's has some too as does Old House Gardens. Both excellent sources.

I can vouch for John Scheepers. Good quality, prompt delivery. I've heard only good things about the other two mentioned above

I recommend Fire of Love if you are looking for recommendations - I grew them for the first time this year, they were very healthy and the striped leaves made them interesting for a long time. I believe mine came from Brent and Becky's.
