The Meaning Of Tulips

The Language of Flowers reads of many flowers for translating your feelings of love.  The rose being the most popular to declare love; but we forget yet another that is just as high on the meaning list. The perfect Tulip.

The red tulip was the all powerful ‘to declare your love” with the black center of all tulips representing the lover’s heart burned to a coal by love’s passion. Indeed!  To give a yellow tulip was said to declare utterly, hopeless love. The pink tulip sends a dream love, while the white tulip is lost in love.

All tulips no matter the color declare some form of passionate love whether declared or not so you can’t go wrong with any color.

Elaborate containers called tulipiere, were vases made in all shape and form to showcase the brilliant blooms.  We actually, have a only few of the elegant tulipiere  in the shop for sale, as they are not the easiest to come by.  The 17th century tulip rage continued until the market collapsed and the flower actually became the cause of a country’s economy dropping.

Enjoy the short giving season of all this tulip love and send tulips soon…. as this spring passion leaves us to its summer love, rival in June to the beautiful rose.
