DescriptionTulips are amongst the most beautiful flowers on earth. Originally cultivated in the Ottoman Empire (present-day Turkey), tulips were imported into Holland in the sixteenth century. When Carolus Clusius wrote the first major book on tulips in 1592, they became so popular that his garden was raided and bulbs stolen on a regular basis. As the Dutch Golden Age grew, so did this large, showy and brightly coloured flower. They became popular in paintings and festivals, and in the mid-seventeenth century, tulips were so popular that they created the first economic bubble, known as “Tulip Mania”. As people bought up bulbs they became so expensive that they were used as money until the market in them crashed.
Similar to the red rose, this beautiful and vibrant flower in this colour symbolises true love. Red whispers of romance and if passion drives you, this is an excellent choice for expressing your deepest affection for that special someone. Red personifies desire and the throbbing heat of new love, a passionate expression of attraction. For those with an interest in feng shui, red tulips are great to have in the home, for it is said that these red beauties help bring fame into one’s life.
