Flower of the month | April | Tulipa saxatilis

As the weather warms up spring flowers start appearing higher up in the hills. One of the most impressive displays (if you can catch it at just the right time) is the flowering of Tulipa saxatilis (also known as Tulipa bakeri) on the plateau of Omalos.

In a good year these showy flowers can spread across entire fields.

The best time to see them will generally be around the middle of April but it will vary from year to year and you might have to go to Omalos several times to catch them at their very best.
