Favorite Flowers – Tulip – Elegant – Graceful

The Tulip (from the Liliaceae family and genus Tulipa) is originally from Persia and Turkey and brought to Europe in the 16th Century.

Today, Tulips grow virtually planet-wide and enjoy festivals celebrating their elegance and grace.

As with most all flowers, there is symbolism and meaning that has been placed upon the species.

Yellow symbolizes cheerful thoughts
Purple symbolizes royalty
White symbolizes forgiveness
Red symbolizes perfect love

Some say that the velvety black center represents a lover’s heart, darkened by the heat of passion.

Then there are the variegated species…

These represent beautiful eyes

The Tulip serves as the 11th wedding anniversary flower. It is a flower that is simple in design yet beautiful in all aspects.
