Tulip

The tulip is one of the most popular garden flowers, grown primarily for its beauty. It is also valued as an ornamental plant because of its extremely showy red and yellow blossoms, which are borne singly on tall stems. The flower, native to Turkey (Asia Minor), was introduced into western Europe in 1554, when the sultan of Constantinople sent the plants to his ruler Queen Mary I. The common wild form is dark red with yellowish-white or white borders. The tulip is one of the most popular garden flowers, grown primarily for its beauty. It is also valued as an ornamental plant because of its extremely showy red and yellow blossoms, which are borne singly on tall stems.

The tulip produces two or three thick bluish-green leaves that are clustered at the base of the plant. The usually solitary bell-shaped flowers have three petals and three sepals. There are six free stamens, and the three-lobed ovary is terminated by a sessile three-lobed stigma. The fruit is a capsule with many seeds. Many garden tulips can be propagated only by their scaly bulbs.

Tulips are popular in Dutch society, especially because the flowers have three petals and three sepals that form an interlocking shape during blooming.

The most common wild form is dark red with yellowish-white or white borders; it gets its name Tulipa Krim (Crimea) from the Crimean Peninsula. The word tulip comes from a Turkish expression for the turban, as the turban-like shape of the blossom was thought to resemble that headdress. The first cultivated forms had flowers in yellow and red on plants growing only to about 10 cm (4 inches) tall; they were introduced into western Europe in 1554 by an ambassador from Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. These early tulips, known as  türkīs, were followed by a variety of taller types.

In the 17th century, especially after 1634, when Charles I of England married Henrietta Maria, daughter of King Henry IV of France, who introduced many French fashions into England—including the wearing of rapiers and courtly behavior—the tulip became the most expensive of all flowers. It was grown in special gardens called tulip fields, which were often separated by small ditches or canals to provide water for the plants. Each bulb produced only one flower, but during the flowering season, an individual plant could produce several blossoms at once. The practice of cultivating rare varieties of tulips in special gardens was very popular, and single bulbs were sold for high prices.
