10. Wild Tulip
(Tulipa sylvestris L.)

10. Wild Tulip

This plant is introduced and has become naturalised in meadows and orchards mainly in eastern England and south-east Scotland. The stem is about a foot or a little more in height with from one to three rather narrow leaves. The single terminal flower is yellow inside, greenish-yellow outside, and it droops when in bud. Although an attractive flower its colouring is somewhat subdued when compared with the brilliant cultivated tulips in our gardens.
