I was reading about tulips on my friend, Rona's delightful blog called, Flowerona. She inspired me to write this post on the amazing tulip.

Interesting Tulip Fact - Tulips are the only flowers that continue to grow once cut. If you place them in an arrangement with other flowers, particularly in floral foam, they will grow right out of the arrangement. I learned this the hard way. It takes about 2 days to happen.
I love tulips in flower arrangements, but no longer use them in my weekly accounts in floral foam. Tulips are great in water though and for special events.
Any interesting experiences with tulips?
