Guess which wild flower native to Central Asia took western Europe by storm in the 17th century, built and collapsed fortunes, served as currency, led some to murder, others to suicide? None other than the tulip, of course!
The flamboyant colors and elegant chalice-shape of Tulips are instantly recoginzable and have been celebrated by artists, poets and folklorists, weavers and jewellers, architects and novelists, over many centuries.
The colorful and attractive cup-shaped flowers typically have three petals and three sepals, more correctly tepals. The bloom has six distinct stamens and three-lobed stigma. The fruits are leathery textured three angled capsules, containing flat disc-shaped seeds in two rows per locule. Evidence of sacred geometry!
