About the Flower

Botanically known as the Tulipa, the bright and cheery Tulip is originally native to Southern Europe, North Africa and Asia. It is believed to have been introduced to Europe through a 16th century Austrian monarch serving as an ambassador under King Ferdinand I to a Sultan of the Ottoman Empire.

This perennial favorite stems from a bulb, and grows best in climates with long, cool springs and early summers.
