#895 They called me Tulipa clusiana, also known as Tulipa grey-wilsonii, Tulipa hafisii, Tulipa fernandezii, Tulipa aitchisonii, Tulipa leichtlinii, and Tulipa clusiana f. fernandezii. I pay homage to the male botanists Grey-wilson (I couldn’t find his records), Hafis (I couldn’t find his records), Fernandez (I couldn’t find his records), James Edward Tierney Aitchison, and Leichtlin (I couldn’t find his records). They first catalogued me in 1803.
