The sun is shinning and the weather is getting warmer, time to start thinking about spring! One of the first flowers to bloom in the spring is the tulip. The tulip has a very interesting history.
Later, scientists found that the split color found in the Semper Augustus is caused by a fungus that infects the roots of the tulip and yields the tulip barren.
We currently have beautiful tulips that range from yellow and white to purple and orange-yellow (pictured at top left).
