Tulips are among the beautiful flowers in the world, especially when they are blooming. They bloom in the spring from bulbs.

Tulips are monocots. They produce one large, bell-shaped bloom at the end of each stem. They come in most colours but blue. Reds and yellows are common, but they vary from white to deep purple. There are over 4,000 garden varieties all over the world. And there are about 100 species of wild tulip, growing right across Asia to China. Huge numbers of tulips are now grown in the fields in Holland. Nowadays Holland is still the centre of tulip growing.
