Did you know?

Tulips are very culturally significant for the Dutch?

In fact, they were considered to be worth more than gold in the Netherlands in the seventeenth century. During this timeframe, many tulip fields were afflicted with an infection known as Tulip Mania, which caused unique variations in the flowers that caused them to be even more valuable. These tulips were colloquially known as "broken" tulips, but their brokenness made them more beautiful. Tulips were the subjects of many famous Dutch paintings during the Dutch Golden Age, and have been strongly linked to the Netherlands ever since. Today, the Netherlands remains among the top tulip producers worldwide.
