HI everyone.. i was given these tulips few year ago in pots from a friend who didnt want them in their garden.. i dont understand why they are gorgeous.

but i do not know wha they are called.. and  i would love to buy some more.




they have blue/green leaves and are gorgeous peach/yellow/ornage colour and tehy flower for ages.

also do i need to dig them up and split them each year..

many thanks for any help.

How lovely these are although I can't help with the identification, but in my own garden, I don't worry about digging them up or division.

I plant mine pretty close but not touching but I do have sandy soil so I'm pretty confident they wont rot through the winter.

Besides, every time I try to move a bunch, I put me damn fork straight through the bulbs or I miss some which perk up next spring looking all gorgeous and innocent

sorry for late reply.. have been able to get on here for some reason.. keeps coming up with error and the squashed tom picture.

anyway thanks for your reply wintersong.. i find i also stick fork into them.. and my soil is sandy also and they love it.

laugh at the little missed ones.. they do that dont they.. i had it with a crocus t his year .. well until hubby mowed it with the grass.. poor thing.

i cant find out about this tulips they are goreous and they stand about 12ins tall and are much smaller than normal tulips.. oh well maybe someone will come along and name them for me.
