Series: "Wild flowers of Crete"

Tulipa saxatilis subsp. bakeri is a beautiful tulip which covers the fields of the Omalos High Plateau on Crete in spring with its multicoloured flowers. The tepals are 4-5cm in length, yellow at base, white at centre and pink at the tip, the latter color predominating. The anthers are yellow (in subsp. saxatilis the anthers are black or brown). The species is endemic to Crete, growing only at altitudes above 800 metres.
