11. Tulipa kaufmanniana (berkariensis)

Soon after the snow melts in the Aksu Zhabagly Nature Reserve in Kazakhstan, on that country‚Äôs borders with Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, this pretty tulip begins to bloom. At higher elevations—up to 5,000m/16,400ft—plants can sometimes be found blooming into August. Wild boar love to eat the bulbs of this tulip, which are high in starch.
