Wild tulips are also great as cut flowers
The scented blooms are attractive to pollinators
The Wild tulip has rich golden yellow blooms and is lovely to add some bright Spring colour to the garden. It prefers a sunny location, so in a woodland environment, it is best planted in an open glade or on the woodland edge. However it is also ideal in an open border or grassland where the lemon scented flowers can be enjoyed. Alternatively the Wild tulip looks super when planted in a container; just making sure the container is well drained.
Although it is most likely that the Wild tulip was introduced, it has since naturalised and can be found growing wild in some areas of the UK. In particular within meadows in the Central and Eastern regions.
