National Flower of Turkey
The national flower of Turkey is the tulip.
The tulip flowers normally have three sepals and three petals. Different species are present in different habitats. The smaller sizes are present in woodlands and tulips from the larger species are present in gardens. The flowers are usually cup-shaped and their bloom is a sign of spring’s arrival.
The shape of these flowers may be like a simple cup or a goblet. The height of the plant ranges from 6inches to 2feet. On each stem, a single tulip flower is present. Each plant has about 6 leaves that are broad in shape.
Tulips are perennial flowers naturally. However, since the flower has been hybridized many times over the years, its ability to return after one year is not as strong as it naturally is. This is why the plant is planted as an annual one in gardens and gardeners plant new bulbs in the fall season.
