Tulip (Tulipa)

The tulip comes from the lily family and came to the Netherlands at the end of the 16th century via Turkey and Hungary (where the plant originally comes from). 
The flower blooms from April to June. 
The Netherlands is known for its tulip, because we are the largest export country in the world. 
Tulip mania began in the Netherlands in the 17th century, with tulip bulbs becoming a means of payment, sometimes their weight in gold. 
Most tulips are grown in the Flevopolder and bloom for about 7 days, the most famous place is the Keukenhof in Lisse.
