Variety: Lily-flowered tulip "Purple Dream"
Flowering height: 18 ins
Month: April into May 
Clare Bulb Co comment: As fine a purple lily-flowered tulip as one can find. This group in our garden flowered for over ten weeks despite the horrors of the 2013 spring. The pointed petals are very distinctive of all lily-flowered tulips.
The lower picture was taken in late April, when they had already been in flower for several weeks, and the bottom picture on May 27th (2013).
