The New Tulip

A tulip is being developed to be unveiled and baptised at the World Tulip Summit in 2012. Maveridge International Bulb Company in the Netherlands is developing the new tulip. I was able to visit Maveridge Farms in November 2011 and have confirmed that we will have a new tulip to baptize at the World Tulip Summit. It is a beautiful yellow tulip. Yellow is the symbol in the flower world for friendship. We have applied to name it "World Friendship Tulip".
