I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose, I would always greet it in a garden. ~ Ruth Stout
This is one of my favorite early blooming tulips. It grows very compact and close to the ground with a very short stem, which is only about one inch long. It opens very wide during the day, then by late evening it closes tightly, resembling a normal tulip. I just photographed this beauty in my garden today, 4/14/11. My other tulips will not be blooming for another two weeks.
