Tulips {InstaScience}

The tulip is the queen of the spring blooms and they are popping out everywhere! Click “Read More” to learn about these beauties!

Spring is in the air!

Flowers are blooming and bees are buzzing!

One of my favorite parts of spring are the bounty of blooms that are popping, brightening the landscape with their color. And the tulip is the queen of these spring flowers!

Tulips bloom between March and May and they hold the spot of the most sought after spring flowers. These plants are part of a group of bulb flowers, meaning that they form a bulbous thickening at the base of the stem, which stores food for their quick growth in spring.

Tulips blooms come in a wide range of sizes and colors, but each one has six petals around a central stem. The male and female parts of the flower are clearly visible, which makes them excellent subjects for nature study!

Fun Fact – There are over 3,000 registered varieties of tulips and that list is growing every year!
