The Colour of Tulips

Tulips are grow in almost every colour. Each colour symbolizes something different. Some are a single colour and some are multi coloured, sometimes with two colours on each petal. The generally symbolize perfect or deep love.

Odd facts about tulips

There are over 3000 varieties

They’re part of the lily family.

In the 1600s they were said to cost 10 times more than a working man’s average salary in the Netherlands, making them more expensive than some homes

Red tulips are the most popular.

This one lived up to expectations. It is pure white. It symbolizes foregiveness.

I wonder what colour this one will be.
