Tulips- one of the top selling flowers in Sydney
Tulip season is in full swing and are some of the best flowers sydney has on offer at the moment. Again this year our "vase of Tulips" flower arrangement is one of our top sellers for online Sydney flower delivery. It makes a simple stylish gift perfect for any occasion. Like most of our Sydney flower arrangements, it comes in a glass vase that the recipient gets to keep long after the flowers have passed, a constant reminder of your thoughtful gesture.
Although people associate Tulips with Holland and The Netherlands, Tulips originate from mountainous regions of a large area of Asia, Europe and Africa. They are Spring flowering Bulbs which need cold winter dormancy conditions, modern cultivation methods enable them to be available to us for a large part of the year.
One comment or question we sometimes are asked is "why are my Tulips flopping?". This is natural, unlike other cut flowers, Tulip stems keep growing even after they have been cut. Eventually the stems can get so long that the flower head becomes too heavy and the flower "flops". Don't see this as a fault but rather a part of the beauty of these flowers.
If you creative, you can put this to good use. Take a look at the picture above, we are lucky enough to have a vase that is perfect for taking advantage of the Tulips features. We have used only 10 stems in this example, but imagine how dramatic it would look with 20 or even 30 stems flowing out from the vase mouth!
Enjoy these beautiful long lasting flowers, and if they eventually "flop" then maybe rethink the vase or the way they are displayed and have fun with them.
