Feast your eyes on yet another beautiful symbol of spring: the tulip.
Tulips are among the most popular spring flowers of all time, and it’s no wonder. They are easy to grow, they come in an incredible variety of colors, heights, and flower shapes, and some are even fragrant. There are now over 3,000 different registered varieties of cultivated tulips.
Every year billions of tulips are cultivated. The majority are grown and exported from Holland. However, millions of tulips are also grown all over the world.
Most tulips are adaptable to many different kinds of climates. The only thing to be careful of is to plant them in fairly well-drained soil. If not, the bulbs may rot before they have a chance to establish a root system. Otherwise, just plant and enjoy.
