SHOT 5/2/09 7:57:44 AM - A red and yellow tulip blooming in the springtime amongst other colorful plants in the backyard garden. Tulipa, commonly called tulip, is a genus of about 150 species of bulbous flowering plants in the family Liliaceae. A number of species and many hybrid cultivars are grown in gardens, used as pot plants or as fresh cut flowers. Most cultivars of tulip are derived from Tulipa gesneriana. Although tulips are associated with Holland, both the flower and its name originated in the Persian empire. The tulip, or lale as it is also called in Turkey, is a flower indigenous to Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan and other parts of Central Asia..(Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2009)
