Tulipa wilsoniana is a small red flowered species from the mountains of Iran and although the taxonomy of tulips is complex and still evolving rapidly I am adding to the nomenclatural chaos by including this name.
It is the same species as T.montana. The yellow form seems to have migrated in that direction while the red remains here. I would have a go at sorting it out but I am senile enough to enjoy the nonsense of nomenclature for a moment longer. Like bobble hats and long-johns, it is an acquired taste.
