The History of Tulips

Tulips were originally found in Persia and Turkey. The fashion of the time was to wear the blossom in the turban and that this has probably resulted in the name of that the flowers now carries. Europeans probably thought that the flower was called a turban and mispronounced it as tulip. Tulips became so popular in the 17th century that they caused markets to skyrocket and then crash.

Tulips are a historic flower that has their popularity attributed to the Dutch. Tulips can be found pretty much anywhere in the world, but the cultivating of new breeds is attributed to the Dutch florists. The stunning colors and delicate shape of the blossom are rightfully thought to be what makes the tulip bouquets beautiful.
