Perhaps the most popular among garden flowers, tulips start as easy-to-grow bulbs, and bloom in early Spring. They come in every color of the rainbow, including bicolors.

The availability of so many colors of Tulips gives the greative gardener a veritable floral palette with which to create masterful works of Art.

Contrary to popular belief Tulips did not originate in Holland but Central Asia and Turkey, from where they were brought to Holland in the 16th century. Holland eventually became the major exporter of tulip and daffodil bulbs.

In addition to their natural early Spring bloom, Tulips can be coaxed to bloom indoors during the winter.
