Did You Know?

There are over 150 species with 3,000 varieties of tulips. Each variety has its own unique shape, size, and color. The Netherlands is the largest producer of tulips in the world. It exports about 3 billion tulip bulbs every year which is a testament to their popularity.

This year, see what types of tulips are blooming!

Check out our visual list to see all the different types!

Name

With the perfect love they represent, it’s no wonder tulips get their name from a Persian word for turban. When in full bloom these stunning flowers look like delicate turbans, making them truly special and meaningful to many.

Symbolism

Tulips have been a symbol of love, rebirth, and charity for centuries. These stunning flowers carry a rich history and are loved for their beauty and meaning. 

They come in a variety of colors and each color has a different meaning. White tulips, for example, symbolize forgiveness, respect, and purity. Yellow tulips mean cheerfulness and hope while red ones stand for eternal love and passion. Pink means affection, caring, and good wishes while purple ones signify royalty and elegance.

Farhad and Shirin’s tragic love story is believed to be the reason behind red tulips symbolizing undying love. According to this dramatic Turkish legend, Farhad had fallen desperately in love with a maiden named Shirin – only for they both experience untimely grief when he finds out that she was killed. Heartbroken beyond repair, it is said that Farhad rode his horse off of a cliff as part of his sorrowful farewell from life – but something beautiful rose up from their tragedy from where Farhad fell – up sprang forth vibrant scarlet tulip blooms!

Fun fact

Believe it or not, tulips can provide more than just a colorful pop of vibrancy in your garden. Their petals are surprisingly edible for humans and make beautiful garnishes for any dish! However, please remember that they should never be shared with our ruminant friends like goats as they cannot endure the toxins found within the petal’s layers. They’re the perfect substitute for onions in recipes, plus they make a great addition to wine. With a fascinating history, tulips also have symbolized wealth since the 17th century – when one single bulb was worth even more than diamonds.

Closing

As the seasons change and spring blooms, we wish for you to bask in the warmth and beauty of these vibrant flowers. May they bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart. Thank you for visiting Dalton Farms and have a lovely spring!
