Favorite Flora: Species Tulips

Tulips Growing Wild in Mountains of Central Asia

http://www.tulipsinthewild.com offers a rare glimpse of wild tulips in their native habitats in the remote mountains and barren steppes of Central Asia. Here wild Tulipa kaufmanniana blooms following the spring snow melt in the Aksu Zhabagly Nature Reserve in Kazakhstan. Wild boar love to eat the bulbs of this tulip, which are high in starch.
