First of all, Tulips are freaking amazing.

Grab a cushion, have a seat and let us tell you a thing or two about Tulips and why we are constantly putting them in your bunches.

First of all, the colours: Tulips have been grown in almost every colour and colour combination you can think of, from a candy-stripe of pink and white, to Tulips as dark as the night sky.

The Tulip is versatile and one of our favourite Winter blooms.

Not only do they come in beautiful colours, but the different types of Tulips will blow your mind too. Frilled, Parrot and Double Tulips are life-changing and mind-altering, I promise.

Have you ever seen a fully open Frilled Tulip?

The way the petals curl and the frills reach under themselves to create the most beautiful expression; there’s no wonder why Tulips have been revered and featured in the art world so much!

They’re pretty darn magical.

A lot of people are oblivious to why Tulips are so magical, and as florists this puzzles us, but as a normal person I guess I can see why – they’re semi-expensive and to be honest, they don’t look like a whole lot when you first buy them.

But did you know Tulips can last for literally weeks?

Yes, you’re not mistaken.

Once the tulip stem is cut off, it will continue to grow, which means that when you think your tulips are “dead” because they are bent in the vase, they are actually living their best lives and growing in the water, and they are reaching out To bask in the sun, stars and everything else, and express this influence through the bending of their stems.

Once you buy tulips and place them in fresh water, you will see that the green of the buds becomes a vibrant and intense color (whether it is pink, yellow, black or purple).

This means that the tulip is about to bloom, and once the bulb color is fully saturated, it will begin to bloom-the interesting part-the tulip is not just a colored bulb, the petals are peeled off one by one, revealing a beautiful center color.

Once they are open, your tulips will have at least a week of life!

As the petals move and fall, you will see color changes and fading. Watching it throughout the life cycle of a tulip is really a beautiful art form.
