The Netherlands is famous because of its tulips, but did you know that in the US professional flower producers also produce hundreds of millions of cut tulips and tulips on pot, which are sold via various retailers to the US consumers. These ‘American’ tulips are grown from flower bulbs that originate from Europe.
Tulip Celebration in Honor of International Women’s Day, March 8th 2021
To kick-off the celebration, tulip growers have partnered with Petals for Hope to giveaway 1,000 bouquets of tulips to women on the frontline, in nursing homes, women’s shelters, and more. Petals for Hope, a non-profit organization, repurposes fresh flowers after weddings and other events to share them with people in less than desirable circumstances. We hope to create a new tradition of sharing Tulips with the women who inspire us every year on International Women’s day! More About the Tulip Celebration

Flower Bulb Day 2020
Flower Bulb Day came to America! On March 7, 2020 the idea was to cover Union Square in San Francisco with a colorful display of more than 100,000 tulips . The public was invited to visit the square and pick their own bunch of tulips. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 at that same day, the program ( had to be adjusted; instead of picking the tulips, they were given away to the public together with other bulb flowers, like iris, lily, amaryllis and hyacinth.More about tulips
