- Tulips have a brief lifespan of only three to seven days.
- Amazingly, Tulips can continue to grow as much as an inch per day after being cut.
- Symbolism such as imagination, dreaminess, and a declaration of love is a big part of the allure of Tulips.
- In a pinch, tulip bulbs make a passably good substitute for onions in recipes.
- Most tulips have two to six leaves, but a few species can have up to 12 leaves.
