Online Auction Description
Bulgaria 1989 issue, Scott's catalog # 3396 CTO, topical stamp, endangered plants: Tulipa Splendens. This stamp is without defects, has no damage, with nice fresh color, and a nice light cancel.
Tulipa schrenkii or Schrenck's tulip is a bulbous herbaceous perennial of species of tulip (Tulipa) in the family of the Liliaceae. It belongs to the section tulipa.
Description: The tunic of the bulb is dark brown. Stiff hairs grow on the inside, especially towards the tip. The 3-4 leaves are glaucous and undulate. They are normally 10, sometimes up to 20 cm long and 3-6 cm wide. The stem is 15-30 cm long and glabrous, sometimes slightly hairy. The flowers of Tulipa schrenckii are bowl shaped and very varied in colour. They can be red, light-red, pink, yellow or white. There are also forms with red petals bordered in yellow or white
Habitat: Tulipa schrenckii grows in the Southern Ukraine, especially on the Crimea, the European part of Russia, especially on the lower Don and around the Sea of Azov, in Western Iran, Azerbaidjan, Ciscaucasia, northern Dagestan, western Kazakhstan, in Central Asia, China and the lowlands of western Siberia. The status of the anatolian populations is dubious, as they could be descended from plants previously cultivated in gardens and parks. Gerhard Pils only lists Tulipa sylvestris, Tulipa humilis, Tulipa saxatilis and Tulipa armena as wild species. Christenhuit et al. assume "ca. seven" wild species, without listing them however. In Russia and Kazakhstan this tulip is listed on the Red List of endangered species.
