Wild Tulip habitats

Escape the ordinary and embrace the world of Cyprus wild tulips, a limited-season phenomenon bursting with vibrant colors and captivating beauty. Witness the breathtaking spectacle of wild tulip habitats in bloom, a unique sight that takes place in March-April.

The name of Tulipa comes from the Turkish word tulipant because the tulip flower resembles a turban (a cloth used by Muslims as a hat). Three species of wild Tulips naturalize in Cyprus: the endemic Tulipa cypria and Tulipa akamasica, as well as the native species Tulipa agenensis.

All of them are included in the Data Book of the Flora of Cyprus; Tulipa cypria and Tulipa agenensis are classified as endangered, while Tulipa akamasica is critically endangered with extinction.

All wild tulips occur in vineyards, orchards, cereal fields and waste ground at an altitude of 100-670 m.

Don’t miss this once-a-year spectacle. Plan your trip during the fleeting bloom period and witness a natural wonder unlike any other. Remember, no matter how pretty they are, picking is forbidden because they are strictly protected and their numbers are depleting drastically.
