Tulip was cultivated in fields as early as 1000 AD in Turkey. Flowers occur naturally from Southern Europe and North Africa, across Anatolia, Iran to the northwest of China. The flower was first introduced into Europe by an Austrian Professor who taught in Holland.

With its saturated and vivid colours, it was in Holland where the love affair with the flower began. As new varieties were created, people began to speculate the bulbs. Price of bulbs went on higher until a bulb cost as much as a house. Eventually the bubble busted in 1637, as the prices tumbling down. However, the love affair continued, as can be seen on Dutch still life paintings.

The majority of the photos were taken in the Mirabellgarten of Salzburg where Maria were filmed with her children in the movie, “The Sound of Music”.
The tulip is perennial, bulbous plant in the genus Tulipa, with the family of Liliaceae (Lily). Its native range extends from as far west as Southern Europe, Anatolia, Israel, Palestine, North Africa and Iran to the Northwest of China. It consists of a number of Tulip species and many hybrid cultivars. Most cultivars of tulip are derived from Tulipa gesnerana.

Tulip was first cultivated in Turkey as early as 1000 AD. It was introduced into the Netherlands in the 17th century. With its vivid saturated colours, it is a perfect flower for the pot. The flower is the symbol for the perfect love. In 1850, the book “The Black Tulip” was published. It was written by Alexandre Dumas the author of the The Marketteers. It was a novel about the creation of a perfect black tulip.
