Tulipa 'Little Beauty'. A new dwarf early flowering variety. Very vigorous and long lasting. Intense pink with blue centre. Some argue that Tulipa hageri 'Little Beauty' is a dwarf species tulip; others believe it to be a garden form of T. humilis so that 'Little Beauty' is sometimes listed under that species. Others have expressed the opinion that T. hageri is synonymous with T. orphanidea, the latter having sundry color variants, clones, or natural hybrids that could be mistakenly regarded as distinct species.
