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.
White tulips are a floral expression of innocence, purity, sympathy and spirituality. They evoke sensations of serenity and peace to anyone who beholds them. White tulips have also been associated with everlasting love – love stronger than death, an eternal love, undying and all sustaining. Illumination, inspiration and faith, white contain all the colours of the spectrum and therefore impart wholeness and perfection.
