Tulipa ‘Singapura’: A Tulip Named After Singapore

Sharing is caring!

Tulips are not usually associated with Singapore. Instead, we are more accustomed to seeing richly-coloured orchids in local floral displays. However, we now have a tulip named after our tiny red dot, the Tulipa ‘Singapura’.

The flowers were given to Gardens by the Bay and named Tulipa ‘Singapura’ in commemoration of the Singapore Bicentennial. The double-petals of the flowers represent the 200 years that have passed since 1819 and red and white are the colours of the National flag.
