Fosteriana tulip bloom time

I am trying to decide what tulip bulbs to plant this fall. I am definitely planting some species tulips and Darwin hybrids. I also like "Flaming Purrisima", a Fosteriana. When would that bloom? With the species, Darwin hybrids, or in between?

Fosterianas are early flowering - I'd include with the species.

FYI, tulips are divided into a number of divisions (15 - 16 if you count multi-flowered) and the bloom times for the various divisions are pretty well documented and predictable. And easily researched.

Thank you for the advice! I will plant them with my species tulips, then. I have been doing a lot of research, as I am a brand new gardener. There is so much to learn, so I appreciate any tips I can pick up!
