This is a catch-all for unidentified tulips in the Tulipa genus. Because they have been cultivated for hundreds of years, cross-breeding has made it nearly impossible to tie any particular tulip cultivar to a specific species. The flowers are usually large, showy and brightly colored, generally red yellow or white, but come in wide variety of shades in-between including pink, purple, and variegated. They are an early spring flower and most commonly found in Connecticut in flower gardens.
