    Hi Robert, I don’t have the notification alert set and just now saw your latest post. The Nursery’s answer sounds odd to me, maybe the height & side way facing position(?), still it doesn’t look like any pasqueflower (Pusatilla) flowers that I familiar of. I think you’re probably have it with tulip, but the dark interior of posted flower above still stymie me since the White Parrot’s images on the Internet appear to have no dark’s interior i.e. from the included link below. Maybe you could try the folks on the second link to narrow down. Best wishes Robert!

    Laura, I sent an email to the Nursery and they responded “Paqueflower”. I think the color is all wrong for the images I have seen. The more I look, the more I am convinced this is a white Parrot Tulip. The foliage in the foreground is from another plant altogether.

    Hi Robert, Thanks for the feedback! I hope you will get the ID for your plant someday and please come back and tell us. I still hope maybe the nursery can help you narrow it down. Too bad the flower isn’t fully open so we can see more details, also I’m not able to see the plant’s leaves clearly either. I’ll continue to look for a match in the meanwhile. Best wishes to you Robert! Laura

    Thank youu for the reference, Laura, but I’m still stymied by the coloration – it doesn’t quite feel right, but oh, so close. I’m still searching.

    Laura, thank you for trying to help me out. I checked out the website you referenced, but am still stymied by the color and foliage (unless the foliage in the foreground belongs to another plant). I’ve actually seen tulips with this coloring, but the foliage is all wrong. I’m still researching this one.

    Laura, I’ve checked out the site you referenced, but am still stymied by the color and the foliage. I’ve actually seen tulips with this coloring, but the foliage is not tulip-like at all. I’m still doing some more research on this one. Thank you for chipping in.

    Hi byankle, Without seeing more of the flower’s details i.e. its stem & the rest of the plant. I, myself can’t tell what type of flower this is. Tulip did cross my mind, so are wood anemone & cultivars in the common globe flower (Trollius). But these are only guesses. Can you get in touch with the nursery and see if they have any information for this pretty flower. For now check out some of the Trollius’ hybrids on the included link below. Best wishes!

    The foliage is all wrong, but could this be some sort of tulip?
