Since one of their tulips inspired a famous novel, our smart Tulip Fairies are very passionate about reading. Books about flowers are their favorite ones, of course!
Did you know that the tulip is one of the flowers that has been cultivated in gardens since ancient times? Native to the steppe and winter-rain Mediterranean vegetation, it belongs to the family Liliaceae, and has spread worldwide due to its unique beauty, a timeless symbol of spring.
Tulip flowers come in many colors, except for pure blue. The Black Tulip is a historical romance novel by Alexandre Dumas. The story takes place in the Dutch city of Haarlem, where a reward is offered to the first grower who can produce a truly black tulip.
The Tulip flower is used to celebrate couple’s 11th wedding anniversaries. It is also the unofficial emblem of Holland and the national flower of Iran and Turkey.
