The Allure of the Magical Tulip

Did you know that Tulips are one of the most sought after flowers? Florists in Muscat have experienced customers coming in and buying every Tulip in sight. Not just popular in Oman, Tulips are in demand all over the world. While not native to this region, tulips can be made available to everyone through careful procurement, care and distribution. 

So what makes Tulips so alluring? One reason might be the large showy flowers which come in a variety of beautiful colours – red, pink, yellow, white, purple etc. In fact, Tulips can be found in almost every colour  except true blue—with almost 4,000 horticultural varieties available. 

Interesting fact from Wikipedia! Tulips were frequently depicted in Dutch Golden Age paintings, and have become associated with the Netherlands, the major producer for world markets, ever since. 

Another reason for its popularity might be that Tulips really surprise the receiver with their beauty and communicate joy and contentment. With their vibrant colours they also look great in a picture which is a great reason to have them around. Lastly, their longevity means that one can enjoy having them for longer.
