Multicoloured bouqet

Every year bulb growers (like paint brands) experiment with fresh new colours to surprise the market. This creates the most beautiful and unusual colour variations. By giving tulips it is useful to know that the colour choosen adds an additional message to the bouquet: Red stands for unconditional love,  – with white you make amends (or forgive) – with pink show your affection, Orange: passion and desire to speak and with a multicolored bouquet show your elegance and respect. Many of the special tulips colours are reflected in the Inspiration range.
