Tulips come in almost every color, and different colors have different meanings. Red flowers symbolize true love, while white represents purity, honor, and holiness. White can also mean “I’m sorry” which could come in handy if you need to send a meaningful apology.
Weather plays a big role in how long tulips stay in bloom. If it’s warm out, tulips only bloom for 3-7 days. Cooler weather helps keep them around for one to two weeks. Large display gardens like those participating in the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Washington state plant bulbs on a staggered schedule.
No, we’re not talking about what happens in during spring. The first Tulip Mania happened in the 1600’s when tulips were the most expensive flower in the world. It’s said that in the Netherlands, a tulip bulb was worth 10x the average man’s salary.
Tulips love the spring sunshine and will lean towards it as they grow. Actually, they’ll even lean toward it in a vase! To keep them upright, rotate the vase each day to give each side equal amounts of time in the sun.
