The term Viridiflora is derived from two Latin words: viridis meaning green and flos meaning flower. All Viridiflora Tulips have a streak of green somewhere on each petal. This contrasts dramatically with the basic flower colour (white, pink, gold, etc.).In addition to this spectacular colour contrast, Viridiflora Tulips are also known for their exceptionally long flowering capability. This makes them a welcome and worthwhile addition to any garden.
