Plant: Tulip (Tulipa) |

This was a very expensive tulip I purchased from Veseys (mail order) and planted in fall of 2010… Now I can’t remember the name of it! It was something like $30 for only 3 bulbs, and they were supposed to be white with blue in the center…. I cannot find my old Vesey’s catalog, nor my receipt, and although it is an adorable little early tulip I’m not sure it looks unique enough to have been worth the price. It kinda blends in with the crocus…
Maybe I’ll get lucky and this isn’t the tulip—- perhaps I planted it somewhere else. WHAT IS THIS PLANT CALLED!?!? AHHHHH!!!! I think it had some crazy long spanish name… Please help!

    I have to agree with the Tulipa polychroma guess. They’re really lovely… sorry they weren’t what you expected, I’ve been there.
