Tulips

Tulips, national flower of the Netherlands, do not originate from the Netherlands! Tulips were wild flowers growing in Central Asia that were cultivated by the Turks as early as 1,000 AD. The flower found its way to western Europe and the Netherlands only in the 17th century, and quickly became widely popular. Today Tulips are cultivated in the Netherlands in great numbers and in huge fields and are exported all around the world.
