Features Garden Tulips (Tulipa gesneriana).
Tulips became popular garden plants in the east and west, but, whereas the tulip in Turkish culture was more or less a symbol of paradise on earth and had almost a divine status, in the Netherlands it represented the briefness of life
Based on a botanical illustration from the 1890s by Edward Step, which we have carefully restored and enhanced.
