Tulips grow frm 10 to 70 centimeters tall. They can even grow in the cold and snowy winter. They have 2 to 6 leaves. Some species can have up to 12 leave. The stems have no leaves to a few leaves, with large species having some leaves and smaller species have none. Typically species have one flower per stem but a few species have up to four flowers. The colourful and attractive cup shaped flowers typically have three petals and three sepals which are mostly termed as tepals because they are nearly identical.
Although tulips are associated with the Netherlands, commrcial cultivation of the flower began in the Ottoman Empire. The word tulip is derived from Persian language dulband (turban).
Tulips are indigenous to mountainous areas with temperate climates. They grow well in climates with long cool springs and early summers, but are often grown as spring as spring blooming annual plantings in warmer areas of the world. The bulbs are usually planted in late symmer and fall, normally from 10 to 20 cm deep, depending on the type planted,in well-drained soils. In parts of the world that do not have long cool spring and early summers, the bulbs are planted up to 12 inches deep. These provide some protection from the heat of summer and force the plants to produce one large bulb each year instead of many non blooming ones. This can extend the usefulness of the plants in warmer areas a few years.
