clean as a lady
cool as glass
fresh without fragrance
the tulip was
[by Humbert Wolfe (1924)]
Tulip is a common name of the genus Tulipa, which has about 150 species of bulbous flowering plants in the family Liliaceae.
The species include short low-growing plants to tall upright plants, growing from 10 -70 centimeters tall. Plants typically have 2 to 6 leaves. Typically species have one flower per stem but a few species have up to four flowers. The colorful and attractive cup-shaped flowers have three petals and three sepals, which are most often termed tepals because they are nearly identical.
Tulips grow best in climates with long cool springs and early summers. They can even grow in the cold and snowy winter.
Although tulips are associated with Holland, both the flower and its name originated in the Persian empire.
