The tulips, which were planted in America, were produced from Dutch flower bulbs. Dutch traders export flower bulbs to more than 100 countries all over the world. And America is by far the biggest export market for Dutch-grown tulip bulbs: a half billion of them every year. Besides, Dutch companies also export many other types of flower bulbs to America, such as lilies, hyacinths, daffodils, dahlia’s and gladioli.
Tulip bulbs are sold to the consumers and to municipalities and with the planting of these bulbs in Autumn they create colourful gardens and public areas during Springtime! Moreover, hundreds of millions of tulip bulbs are supplied to professional growers who plant them in their greenhouses for the production of the famous tulip flowers. So, in San Francisco you can pick a fresh bunch of American tulips, produced from Dutch flower bulbs. Don’t miss it and come to Union Square on March 3!
