You have some really nice indigenous plants in Pakistan. Most of them I have never seen or come across before. Who knows, perhaps I will come across some indigenous bulbs soon for my collection. I have very few bulbs from the northern hemisphere.

Yes, indeed our northern mountain ranges such as Himalaya and its plains such as Deosai have some very exotic plant species. Infact Tulips are indigenous to Pakistan and surrounding areas. Tulipa lehmanniana and Tulipa stellata are the common ones. Similarly Cyclamen, Eremurus himalaicus, various Allium species such as macranthum and wallichii and many more bulbous plants are natives of himalaya

Wild Tulips: Tulipa Lehmanniana

The name Tulip is derived from Turkish word 'Tulbend' meaning a turban.
Each plant of Tulipa Lehmanniana conists of an erect stem, bearing strangely twisted sessile leaves. Flowers are brilliant red, orange and yellow cup shaped. They present a most stupendously striking sight, rising out of the desert like soil. Photographed in Chiltan National Park, Baluchistan

Clematis Vitalba also known as Travellers Joy since it known to smell good is a vigorous climbing plant; growns in chalky soil. The pretty greenish white flowers are less spectacular than the white beard attached to the seeds, which look most decorative. Photographed in Murree.
