Tulips (Tulipa gesneriana) are the most popular bulbous flower, and one of the most popular flowers in spring. Few people know it is a perennial herb that spends the winter in the bulb. The flowers are large and colorful; red, yellow, white, and pink are the most common. These elegant and exotic flowers have been popular since they were introduced into Europe in the late 16th century.
In Europe, the tulip is known as “the queen of flowers.” Thanks to a hundred years of effort, horticulturists have registered more than 3,000 tulip varieties, despite the fact that there are about 15 different varieties in one similar flower pattern.
