Tulipa goulimyi Sealy & Turrill



    Taxon info

    Tulipa goulimyi is one of several new species discovered by Constantine N. Goulimis (cf. Plate 14: 1). It occurs in seemingly trivial habitats in phrygana and garigue at low altitude in S Peloponnisos, just extending to W Kriti. The bulb tunics have a dense brown wool inside, and the perianth segments are fairly short, broad and generally tomato-red (a rare yellow form is also known).A
