Tulip Pulchella Violacea

These starry, bright pinky purple flowers with brilliant yellow interiors pop from the garden in early spring, banishing the dreary shades of winter and announcing the warmer spring days to come. A tiny species tulip with big impact and the easiest care requirements, Pulchella Violacea isn't widely available but is worth searching for - and you've found it! One of the earliest flowering species tulips and a prolific naturalizer.
