Flowering Facts: Tulips

tulipsThough Tulips tend to be associated with Dutch culture, they were actually first grown in the Middle East.  The name “tulip” originates from the Turkish word for “turbin.”  This might have a lot to do with the particular shape of the flower which replicates the look of a turbin.   After being cultivated in the Middle East the tulip made its way to Holland where in the 16th century they were considered precious & sold for extremely high prices. 

Tulips tend to be associated with imagination & love and red tulips were considered to be romantic presents during the Victorian era.
