FLORA – TULIPS

 

 

Tulipa ‘Matchpoint’

'Matchpoint' is a fascinating achievement of modern plant-breeding. It has a very full flower, so at first glance looks like a peony. Another special feature is its rosy colour with hints of purple. The most prominent feature is the little fringes or frosting that adorn the margins of the perianth. It is popular with Slovenes: in the selection of the Mister Tulipanov at the Volčji potok Arboretum in 2020, it was among the top three.

 

Tulipa sylvestris

There are no tulips that grow wild in Slovenia. The closest thing is the Tulipa sylvestris, known as the woodland tulip, which grows in Italy. Its flowers are smaller than cultivated tulips, but are a jolly shade of yellow. Some species of wild tulip still thrive along the Mediterranean coast, but the homeland of the largest number of species is in the rocky wastes of Central Asia.

 

Tulipa ‘Apeldoorn’

Horticulturalists often complain that tulips bloom just in the first year, then give up or just put out leaves. The more special and unusual the variety, the more this is true. On the other hand, there are tried and tested tulips, such as the ‘Apeldoorn’, which happily become established and bloom for many years. It has a strong stem and is not bothered by rain!
