“Canada 150” Tulip

Screen Shot 2016-05-10 at 1.11.42 PMThere are 200,000 “Canada 150” tulips blooming in the NCC’s flower beds around the capital — including Parliament Hill, along Confederation Boulevard and the Rideau Canal, and the parkways — and next spring there will be 300,000. Canadians will be able to purchase these bulbs at participating Home Hardware stores across the country this fall, and plant them in their own gardens in time for them to bloom next spring.

As the official gardener of Canada’s capital, the NCC is responsible for designing and planting close to one million tulips of 100 varieties in 100 flower beds around the city. The first tulip beds in the capital were planted in 1945 when the Netherlands sent 100,000 tulip bulbs as a postwar gift of gratitude for the role Canadian soldiers played in the liberation of the Netherlands, as well as for providing safe refuge during the war for members of the Dutch royal family. Princess Margriet, daughter of Queen Juliana, was born in Ottawa
