The French tulip is one of the most popular wedding flower this season; definately a trend for 2009 weddings. This bloom, which is native from Persia, has been highly demanded by European aristocracy starting the 1500’s. Its demand has not stopped, and has become a wedding favorite as it is one of the most meaningful blooms representing “consuming love” and “happy years.” As peculiar as it sounds, French tulips keep growing after they are cut, and can grow up to six inches more while in the vase! Also, when placed near a window, they will turn themselves towards the sun, as they are phototropic, opening more when it is warm and closing when the temperature drops.
French tulips are available in most solid colors including white, red, cream, light pink, orange, pink, purple and yellow.
French tulips are elegant flowers that French Tulips have an average minimum stem length of 12 inches and average head size of 2-3 inches. Tulips have one bloom per stem.
Ideal delivery date:

Flower care tips:
Tulips are easy to care for: once your flowers are delivered, proceed by cutting the stems and placing them immediately in a container filled with fresh, clean water. Because French tulips continue to grow after being harvested, they may flop to the sides if the stems grow too long. If this is the case, recut the stems to a desired length and continue hydrating them.
