Low chill tulips?

tugbrethilMarch 1, 2010

Does anyone know if someone has done hybridizing with some of the more Mediterranean type tulip species, to develop varieties that will grow easily in the Sunbelt? I have been reading about species like Tulipa clusiana, T. goulimyi, T. saxatilis or its diploid cousins, or T. sylvestris. Possibly also T. systola or T. polychroma.

Any info appreciated!
