Daily Flower Candy: Tulipa batalinii ‘Bronze Charm’

Diminutive Tulipa batalinii is native to Central Asia, where it grows on stony hillsides. Tulipa batalinii ‘Bronze Charm’ is one of many pretty named varieties, the flowers the colour of a dawn sky, delicately flushed with bronze. It is one of the best small tulips for growing in rock gardens or shallow pans. I was in two minds whether the partnership with purple violas would work, but the tulips’ inky stamens complement perfectly the velvety richness of their companions.
