Those species tulips are really cool. I keep telling myself to add some to my garden but can never remember to actually do it. Pretty cool that you got to see the agave, don't think I'll be able to catch it blooming. Oh well, maybe I'll get to see the put that's growing at the base bloom.
What MBT said! I'm tempted to try a few species tulips here to see if they're any more resistant to the rabbits who always seem to eat the buds on hybrids just before they bloom.
I don't usually have problems with rabbits eating my tulips, species or hybrid, so I can't say the hybrids are any better for that. What I do like is that they're shorter and the corollas open up more. If you get some (I ordered mine from American Meadows), plant them closer together than you would with hybrids because the foliage is so narrow!
