Tulipa saxatilis is a lilac bowl shaped botanical tulip from the Greek islands and Western Turkey. On very sunny days the flowers open completely flat. The golden yellow heart is shown to the world with pride. Tulipa saxatilis is often confused with the subspecies Tulipa bakeri. The difference between these two species is in the colour of the anthers. Tulipa saxatilis has brown anthers, while Tulipa bakeri has yellow anthers. Also does Tulipa saxatilis not grow above 900 meters, but in gorges, on rockery slopes and on field margins. Tulipa bakeri is often found on higher plateaus. Registered since 1825, but is growing on his finding place Crete for ages.
