Hi Clusiana. Can't wait to see what you will be doing with your Tulip Cubit. I have a number of different tulips that were here when we bought the house 11 years ago, but don't know the names of any of them. I am sure most are older varieties, some that are scented.

Hi Valleylyn. Welcome.
Prepare you camera and come over. I am sure we will be able to help with id's. What you are telling me is very interesting. Most of people do not keep their tulipes alive and they do not return. Amazing to hear you have got yours for 11 years. In your idea are they species?
I have to built this cubit but you are welcome any time. Are your tulips showing now?

None are up yet, but I do have daffodils up. Tulips will be up soon. I am sure most were planted in the late early to late 50's. They are yellow, red, and one that is a peony style (scented). When they come up I will post photos. : )

Let me know if there is anything I can help with. There are so many wonderful people here it Cubits that are willing to help in any way they can. Thumbs up

i am living in the South West of France in an area called Aquitaine. Here the climate is something like in Oregon. You will forgive me if my English is not as good as I wish...Daffodills are on their way to bloom here also. You do not find peony style tulips among the species so yours is certainly an old cutivar of peony tulip. If those are very old it is really interesting and I will be waiting for your pics.
It's so kind of you to offer your help. I decided to open this cubit as I wish to share with every single one being a tulip lover all around; Right now the main problem is that I feel very akward managing the cubit.
Thank you.

Tulipa Kaufmanniana 'Early Harvest'


This Kaufmanniana hybrid is always the first Kaufmanniana tulip to bloom. A very reliable bloomer. Strong and bright one.

Clusiana, your English is very good. : )

What a beautiful tulip that is. I have never seen any like that. I do believe I like it better than tulips I am used to seeing. Thank you so much for posting the wonderful photos.

I'm a tulip fan too! I just wish they could last all summer. I haven't too many, because we just moved here two years ago, but I plant a handful of bulbs every Fall.

Will you be having a separate thread or forum for us to add our own photos?

Will you be adding a Database eventually?

Hurray! How great to watch the birth of a new Cubit. : )

I think I have been missing out all these years. I love that little species tulip. Is Early Harvest a species type? Are they good at coming back year after year?
CLUSIANA
Mar 5, 2011 6:25 PM CST
Hello Lynn,
Early Harves is an hyrid of species (Kaummanniana tulip). Most of the species are coming back every year if cultivation environnment is suitable. Hybrids species return every year too especially those from Kaufmann and Greigii, also from Clusiana and others. Will post the wild form of Tulipa Kaufmanniana tomorrow.
We are going to have great time. If some of your tulips are tall, old and coming back each year they may be are tulipa gesneriana but I will have to llok at them..

Hi C

Congrats on the new forum!

Glad you will be sharing all the lovely blooms. My few species are still just foliage!

You are lucky that you can grow them in the ground as I need mine in large containers

Keep them coming and as mine bloom I too will post

Hi Dee. : )
Why do you have to grow yours in containers?
CLUSIANA
Mar 5, 2011 6:25 PM CST
Lynn I will answer as Dee do not seem to be around. The good thing with Tulipa is that they are doing well also in pots; Better not to put them into plastic pots for a better drainage, so barrels are just perfect. Easier also to get the bulbs back.

Tulipa Kaufmanniana

This is the wild form of a little tulip which have given birth to many hybrids, each more beautiful than the others.

The more photos of this type of tulip I see, I realize I like them more than the big hybrids.
