Wedding Flower Favorites: Tulips

Nothing says “Spring” like seeing tulips pop up in your garden. Like many other spring flowers – think daffodils, hyacinths, and irises – these beautiful blooms bring rich, vibrant color and texture to any bouquet or arrangement.  We especially love the tulip for its availability:  Unlike some of its spring friends, wholesale tulips are readily available throughout the year. They are mainly grown in Holland and shipped all around the world.

Known for their amazing color variation, tulips symbolize “perfect love”, making them exquisite in wedding flowers and charming as gifts.  You can find these beauties in pink, red, orange, peach, white, yellow, purple, and even bi-colored varieties. Standard tulip buds are elegant and sleek, with one bloom per stem standing straight and tall. These blossoms have a cupped and starred shape which makes them quite unique compared to other varieties of flowers. Other varieties, like parrot tulips and fringed tulips, offer ruffled petal edges for additional texture.

Arranging Tulips Year-Round

One of the most attractive qualities about tulips is that they are available to customers all year long! This makes them a very versatile flower that can be incorporated into an endless variety of arrangements, from classic to quirky. Tulips pair beautifully with hydrangeas, roses, lisianthus, stock, and gerbera daisies.

Follow these helpful guidelines to make the most out of tulips throughout the year:

  • In the spring and summer time, use tulips that are pink, yellow, orange, red, white, and purple for bright designs. Use softer colors for Easter arrangements.
  • During the winter months incorporate red and white tulips for a seasonal holiday arrangement.
  • As fall approaches yellow, orange, peach, and white tulips will help add a festive feel to any floral arrangement.
