I suppose the picture (taken today in zone 6, Central Europe) shows some kind of tulips. Am I correct and if so what (hybrid) kind could it be?

enter image description here


I suspect they're Tulipa kaufmanniana - as to precisely which one, there are so many, I can't say. 'Heart's Ease' is a pretty common one, but the leaves on that are usually striated with brown, so I don't think it's that particular one.

    Yup. Looks similar to Heart's Delight (link in German, sorry...). OP's photo appears a bit "too cool", colorwise.

  • This is just a guess, but might it be Tulipa Fosteriana Concerto? The leaves look more similar in color and style than some of the other varieties. (Close-up) Apr 7 '15 at 20:12

    @Sue Similar, yeah, but the flower color is wrong. Species tulips aren't very variable in flower color (per species).

  • @J.Musser That's interesting. I always thought tulip species came in multiple colors! Thanks for the education! Apr 7 '15 at 22:11
