The Tulip is one of the most popular cut flowers that are loved by many people all over the world; The Tulip is the national flower of Turkey and is seen as a token of a love, passion and romance.
Tulips were originally a wild flower grown in Central Asia and was cultivated by the Turkish as early as 1,000 AD. The beautiful flowers were then brought over to Western Europe in the 16th century. Carolus Clusius; a famous biologist brought over the flowers from the east and identified; the ‘broken tulip’, a disease which causes beautiful streaking to the petals of the flowers, This streaking effect set off ‘Tulip Mania’ which made popularity of the flowers grow tremendously, resulting in the prices soaring and the tulips being even more valuable than gold.
