Tulipa praestans

The most intense orange-red color to be found in tulips. The flowers glow like beacons in the Gissar Mountains (2,300m/7,500ft) of Tajikistan. A few Dutch growers have this species in their fields. It is pretty—really pretty—but the bulbs are so tough to clean it hurts your hands.
