Tulipa linifolia and T. stellata ssp. chrysantha

Tulipa linifolia
and Tulipa stellata ssp. chrysantha flower at the same
time in March-April, and make good companions for a brilliant show.  Both
species need a couple hours of strong sunshine for the tight lily-shaped
blooms to fully expand to surprisingly large flat blooms of shocking
color and shiny texture.  In the photo above, after about 1 hour of sun,
the flowers develop an open, flared lily shape.  In the photo below, the
fully expanded flowers greet the sun.
