Tulip from trade.

Last fall I received a few bulbs and some Day Lilies from another gardener. When I planted them I had no idea what they were. So far I think an Allium has come up and now I have these Tulips(?) blooming. The blooms are huge and on some that have opened the petals have unfurled into something that reminds me of a bat in flight. The variegation is interesting and I wonder if it was crossed to look like this on purpose. Anyway what ever it is it has been a pleasure to watch and check up on daily.


This Tulip has been IDed as a Flaming Parrot Tulip. Thanks for the help.
