Genus: Tulipa

The tulip is a perennial plant grown from a bulb.  They bloom in many colors and shapes with large, showy flowers.

Fun Fact:  During the height of the Ottoman Empire, the tulip was seen as a symbol of abundance and indulgence.  This era is sometimes known as the “Tulip Era” or “Lale Devri”  in Turkish.
