#96 They called me Tulipa orphanidea, also known as Tulipa orphanidea subsp. whittalii, Tulipa whittallii, Tulipa orphanidea var. whittallii, and Tulipa hayatii. I pay homage to the male botanists Whittal (I couldn’t find his records), Edward Whittall, and Hayat (I couldn’t find his records). They first catalogued me in 1862.
