Quick Guide on Tulips

shutterstock_248293039Above all other early bloomers, tulips are the flowers for spring. Blooming from early March into late May, tulips can be found almost everywhere – in spring decorations, potted plants, forced bloom containers, on top of cakes, and of course in bouquets. First cultivated around the year 1000 A.D., tulips were blooming wildly in Turkey much earlier. Since their first cultivation, however, their beauty has spread worldwide. With about one hundred known species and over three thousand recorded varieties, tulips are available in white, purple, red, pink, orange, yellow, green, multicolor, and almost every color and shade in between. They also grow in different varieties of heights and petal shapes. Some tulips grow in clusters, while others sprout up with individual blooms. This season, our professional florists at Peoples Flowers Shops can help you add a touch of beauty to your surroundings or send it to your friends and family with springtime’s favorite flower, the tulip. 

In addition to being beautiful, tulips are also perennials, which means that their bulbs, if properly cared for, will bloom every year. Just like spring, potted tulips bloom each year, and potted tulips make a lovely gift for any friend or loved one who could use a little more color in his or her life. After tulips have bloomed, the bulbs can be planted outside in early fall to bloom again and bring more joy the next spring. Delivered in a rustic wicker basket, our potted tulips will warm up any office or room until they are ready to be planted.
