Tulip Heart

Tulipa commonly called Tulip is a genus of about 100 species of bulbous flowering plants in the family Liliaceae. The native range of the species includes southern Europe, north Africa, and Asia from Anatolia and Iran in the east to northeast of China. The centre of diversity of the genus is in the Pamir and Hindu Kush mountains and the steppes of Kazakhstan. A number of species and many hybrid cultivars are grown in gardens, used as pot plants or as fresh cut flowers.


Tulipa è il nome di un genere delle Liliaceae originario della Turchia: comprende specie bulbose alte 10-50 cm, tra cui alcune spontanee in Italia, note col nome comune di Tulipano. Il "Tulipano" è stato importato in Europa per la prima volta da Francesco Giuseppe d'Asburgo, a Vienna.
