The very origin of the Tulip is not known in history for sure. But it is claimed with strong indications that it is produced and used by the Turks long before anyone mentioned its name. We come across to its name as early as the 13th century in the poems of Mevlana:

O my soul

Burn with the breath blown to your being

But be like a Tulip, so that only the lover will know your  being..

 

Or maybe you are a fan of Omer Hayyam:

When the nightingale starts singing in our garden

Wine shall bloom in the hand like a tulip

Died with a chalice in his hand, they are sure to say one day

Let them, the ignorant, who cares..

 

Wherever you look it is for sure we adored it much before than the western World. It was admired so much by the Ottomans, between 1718 and 1730 we had an era called ‘’The Era of the Tulips’’ in which the price for a beautiful tulip could be the same price with a house. It was an indication of the beauty of life for the upper class of the Ottomans. It is an era in which Baroque art reached its culmination. In  a document dating to 1764 there were over 1500 types of tulips in İstanbul.
