Tulipa sprengeri

Every so often in the garden a plant comes into flower that almost every visitor wants to know the name of. Right now, that plant is Tulipa sprengeri! Seen here flowering on the Winter Border. This wonderful specimen is the last of the tulips to flower, and unfortunately its appearance sounds the death knell for our cheerful spring friends. Although, the tulips have had a great innings this year, and what a high to end on with this joyous flush of scarlet!
