Tulipa whittallii

Tulipa whittallii

Anyone have any experience with Tulipa whittallii (species tulip)? What do you think of the color? Nice or somewhat blanched? An acquaintance of mine said she was disappointed in the color and now I'm debating whether or not I should bother trying it. But maybe it was just her conditions? What's your experience? Any other species tulips you would recommend?
