The Tulip Flower’s History

Tulips were first discovered in Central and West Asia. Tulips’ beauty enticed the Ottoman Empire to cultivate them; planting and development of these flowers began in Turkey around 1000. Tulips’ visual beauty has been immortalized in Persian and Turkish ornamental art.

Speculators’ price play on tulips contributed to the Turkish Ottoman Empire’s economic decline. Tulip prices rose as a result of high demand for flowers, which was not met by an adequate supply. This also causes a phenomenon known as tulip mania. One of them is the spread of tulips to various parts of the world, which the Netherlands is responsible for. Every year, the Netherlands sends tulips to Ottawa as a gesture of gratitude to Canada for assisting in the liberation of their country from Nazi Germany. Tulips can now be found in a variety of countries around the world.
