To the Tulip Hunters



Dutch Tulip Hunters Travel Rough,
Armed with Cameras

Feature (618 words)
Tulips are one of the most recognizable flowers. Yet it may surprise many to see them growing wild in their native habitats. Genteel tulips originated in some of the most rugged places on earth, tough survivors that cling to desert mountain ridges and thrive on barren windswept steppes. In this story, five Dutch tulip enthusiasts travel to the remote mountainous regions of Central Asia, the Mideast and China in a twenty-year quest to find and photograph tulip species growing wild in harsh native habitats. These modern-day botanical explorers braved threats from extreme weather and terrain, armed gangsters, wild animals and more. Now a collection of their images is visible for the first time online at www.tulipsinthewild.com.

To Wild Tulip Tips

Wild Tulips Thrive in a Garden’s Rough Spots

Feature 664 words
Most gardens have one, a sunny spot where it just seems tough to grow anything. Maybe the soil is a bit thin, perhaps overly sandy or laced with rocks and gravel. Well there may be an easy answer for that and it may surprise: plant tulips there this fall. Wild or species tulips are as tough in a garden as they are in harsh native environments. Plant them in the right spot, and it’s easier to kill them with kindness than it is with neglect.
