Tulips Flowers

General Information on Tulip Flowers and Plants

The Turks knew the tulip as Lale, but the contemporary name is assumed to come from the Turkish term ‘tülbend’ meaning ‘muslin’ or ‘gauze’. This term has its roots in the Persian term ‘dulband’ meaning  ’round’ and is considered to be mention of the tulip’s likeness in shape to a turban.

Tulip grows as a single branch and flower for each plant, with 2 to 6 leaves in (although less common types can have 12) which are long, slim and green. The blossoms, which come in many colors have 6 ‘tepals’ which consist of 3 plant petals and 3 sepals. Each plant can vary in height which is from 10cm to 71cm based on the types.    

Tulips develop normally across European countries and Asia. They are a regular feature in gardens all over the world and are particularly frequent in English gardens.

There are now over 3,000 different authorised types of harvested Tulip. Every year enormous amounts of Tulip are harvested, a lot of which are grown and exported from Netherlands.



Care and Handling for Tulip Flowers and Plants

Choose a suitable vase: Choose a container that will stand up to protect at least half the peak of the tulip glasses you've brought home.

 They'll be able to trim against the container without bending over. If you use a smaller container, the blossoms will ultimately fold ahead. This is an impact some people like, but it may cause the blossoms to die faster.


Watering: Fill the container with cold water,cold water will keep the branches fresh and crisp, while warm or hot water would cause them to become weak and soggy.

Temperature: Keep the container out of the sun. Place it in a place that will not be too hot and warm. Otherwise, the tulip will wilt the heat.


Wash the vase: Ensure it doesn't have sediment remaining from your last bouquet. Use soap and hot water to wash it intensely, and then dry it completely with a soft towel.

With this, your fresh tulip won't pick up viruses that could cause them to start decaying faster.
