Artist's Description

Occurring naturally from southern Europe to central Asia, the genus Tulipa contains around 100 species of bulbs, and is a member of the lily (Liliaceae) family. They have been cultivated for at least 3,000 years and reached Europe from Turkey in 1554. They quickly became a garden favorite, but it was not until the Dutch tulipomania of the 1630s that tulips became established in our folklore as well as our gardens. When the frenzy of tulipomania subsided, some of those who lost fortunes during this frenzied period of time found out through necessity what tribespeople of Central Asia had long known: tulip bulbs are edible. The blooms are unfailingly delightful, especially if planted as a massed bedding of a single type.
