The official flower of the Netherlands, Royal Red tulips originated in Central Asia and their name comes from the Persian word for turban because, in full bloom, tulips have a turban-like shape.
Commonly understood to mean love, each colour varies their meaning – our Royal Red symbolise Happiness and Friendship – but with an entire rainbow of possibilities, there is a tulip variety for every occasion. Tulips instil utter joy at every turn and as a short-stemmed flower variety, are best displayed in a low vase.
Tulips do continue to grow once cut, so it is important to select a vase that will support them. Our Clear Glass Chimney Vase is a personal favourite.
