36. Tulipa bakeri

T. bakeri is endemic to the Omalos Plain (1,000m/3,300ft) in the Lefka Ori (White Mountains) of western Crete. It seems to prefer loose soil and can often be found along the edges of farms. The abandonment of farmland and plowing in spring (rather than fall) poses a threat to this beauty.
