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

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
