The flora of Greece is among the richest and most interesting in Europe.

Goulimis’s tulip (Tulipa goulimyi) was discovered in 1954 by Constantine Goulimis and described in 1955 by British botanists J.R. Sealy and W.B. Turrill, who gave it its name. Its distribution is limited to the southeastern Peloponnese, the islands of Elafonissos, Kythera (where it is quite common) and Antikythera, as well as northwestern Crete (where it is very rare). This tulip’s key characteristic is that its bulb tunics bear copious wool of brownish hairs inside. Its flower is usually bright red, but in rare cases may even be yellow.

The species has been classified as “Vulnerable”.
