Tulip in the rain

Newer Older

Tulip photographed in the Hortus Botanicus, botanical gardens of the Leiden University in the Netherlands. Of all the bulbous plants, the tulip is without a doubt the most popular. Tulips are grown on an extremely large scale, especially in Holland (the Netherlands) where their history goes back to the end of the sixteenth century. That was when the first tulips were noticed growing in the vicinity of Leiden. Now, more than 400 years later, billions of tulips are being cultivated, the vast majority of them being exported from Holland. Now there are more than 3,000 cultivated varieties registered.

Tulp gefotografeerd in de Hortus Botanicus (botanische tuinen) van de Universiteit van Leiden. Van alle bolgewassen is de tulp zonder twijfel de meest populaire. Tulpen worden op zeer grote schaal geteeld, vooral in Nederland, waar de geschiedenis teruggaat tot het einde van de zestiende eeuw. De eerste tulpen afkomstig uit het Midden-Oosten groeiden daar toen in de omgeving van Leiden. Nu, meer dan 400 jaar later worden er in de Bollenstreek nog miljarden tulpen geteeld. Het grootste deel is bestemd voor de export. Nu zijn er meer dan 3.000 gekweekte variëteiten geregistreerd.
