Tulips are easily one of the most recognized and beloved flowers. Their unique shape and multiple meanings make this cheerful bud an excellent choice when sending flowers.
Much like the rose, the meaning of a tulip varies depending on the colour of the bud. The general tulip is a symbol of love. Red tulips are often seen as a declaration of ones love to the receiver. The yellow tulip is meant to compliment the receiver by letting them know that he or she brings joy into your life.
Fresh-cut tulips will keep growing in a vase, often gaining an inch or more in height! Tulips also bend, twist, and turn toward a light source. The spontaneous nature of tulips always makes for an interesting display. Every day, tulips have a different look!
Tulips are stunning when displayed on their own or paired with a variety of other fresh flowers. They are the perfect gift to celebrate birthdays, congratulations, new baby, or send to family and friends. Besides the dahlia, tulips come in more colours than any other flower.
To maximize the life of your cut tulip bouquet, on arrival immediately cut the stems and continue to re-cut an inch from the flower stems every few days. Keeping fresh water in a vase will also help breathe life into your tulips.
And, remember, tulips will bend and twist toward a source of light – to straighten bent tulips, wrap the stems tightly with damp newspaper, tie then with a rubber band or twine, and stand them in deep, lukewarm water directly below a light source. In a couple of hours, your tulips will be standing tall again.
