This is THE naturalising tulip par-excellence, with beautiful pointy, elegant flowers followed by almost as pretty seedpods. Throw a handful of bulbs out over the grass and plant them just where they fall, to create a sward worthy of a Persian bulb field. You can add in scillas and chionodoxas as here.
