[Name of flower] Tulip [Latin name] Tulipa hydrida [Origin of flower] Originally found in southern Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and China. [Common uses- how they come for sale] As bulbs for your garden, potted plants, or the most popular here, cut flowers! [Colours and Varieties Available] Parrot tulips, double tulips in every colour except blue or black. [Fun Fact] Tulips are one of the only flowers that stretch in water. This phenomenon is called phototropism; they are trying to reach up towards light. Just re-cut stems to avoid that crazy look, or leave it if you like it! Many people really want that “droopy tulip” style.

Has winter got you down? There’s nothing worse then coming home to or waking up to a thick blanket of snow. The winter whiteout melts everything into a blur. Have no fear, there is one way to fight back the monotony of white: decorations! You can cheer up your home inside and out with window boxes of wintergreens and branches and decorative wreaths!
