Some of the history of tulips
The tulip flower is not originally from the Netherlands but from Turkey. Tulip flowers were first imported in Antwerp in 1562. This was the beginning of European tulip cultivation. The Netherlands excelled in growing the tulip plant because of its ideal climate. The first tulip bulb was planted by Carolus Clusius in Leiden.
In the 17th century (1634-1637), the 'tulip madness' arose in the Netherlands. There was so much demand for tulips that the price skyrocketed considerably. To the point that a tulip bulb had the same value as an Amsterdam canal house!
In 1637, the government ended the tulip craze by restricting trade in tulip plants. During the time of the tulip craze, some people became very rich and many very poor by speculating.
