Tulips are instantly recognisable with their teacup shaped flowers and tall slender stems. They come in a wide range of colours, each with their own distinctive meaning.
While tulips have a general meaning of love, the pink tulip specifically denotes feelings of caring, perfect happiness, or well wishes. Many florists consider this flower choice appropriate for all occasions.
Tulips originated in Turkey and Persia, and became popular with Europeans in the 17th Century. Although tulips are now grown throughout the world, people normally refer to them as "Dutch Tulips".
The word "tulip" is actually a Persian word meaning turban.
Pink tulips come in a variety of shades and sizes; flower sizes range from 18 inches to 36 inches tall.
Your fresh tulip flowers should last in the vase for about seven to ten days. Only add commercial flower food to extend the life of your blooms. )
Only the rose and chrysanthemum are more popular than the tulip.
