Garden Tulip - Tulipa
Familiar as a garden flower and occurring in numerous varieties and colours.
Occasionally escapes beyond the garden boundaries for instance when discarded bulbs manage to establish and grow. It rarely persists for long in the wild and is usually found close to habitation.
Various cultivated varieties have been developed to extend the flowering period but it is probably most likely to be seen flowering in April and May.
Occasional but widespread in Britain as a casual escape from cultivation.
Rare or little recorded in Leicestershire and Rutland as a casual escape from cultivation. It was not recorded in the 1979 Flora survey of Leicestershire.
