Upside-down tulip is a special type of fritillaries mainly found in the Zagros Mountain range in western and southern Iran.

The flower sprouts on the Iranian plains of Isfahan and Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari provinces in mid-March every year. The full bloom of upside-down tulips is spectacular, as if it creates a red and green carpet. During this period, a lot of travellers visit areas where this wonderful flower blooms.

A place these tulips grow in is Khansar of Isfahan, at the foot of Golestan Kooh Mountain. Its flowering begins in early May and ends at the end of spring. These tulips, which have a short lifespan, enjoy healing properties for rheumatism and joint pains.
