La temporada está mejorando y las tulipas en los Jardines de Ashton están empezando a florecer. Ese año representa el 14 vez que hemos tenido Tulip Festival y queremos que lo disfrute para sí misma. Venga para ver más que 280,000 variedades de tulipas importados de Holanda. Los 15 jardines temáticos en los Jardines de Ashton demuestran vistas impresionantes. Estamos seguros de que van a querer su camera por ser tan hermoso.

Ese año también incluirá una de sus cosas favoritas, la oportunidad de cortar sus propias tulipas en un área especial. Antes de cortarlas tiene que ir al invernadero para pagar y recibir podas especiales. *favor de no cortar las tulipas en otras áreas que no son designados.

Aun que tendremos algunas experiencias nuevas ese año, aun tendremos actividades clásicas de Tulip Festival. El 28 de abril tendremos el Tulip Festival 5k y Kid’s Run y el día 5 de mayo terminaremos Tulip Festival con un concierto del Lyceum Philharmonic en el Anfiteatro de Cascadas.

Muchas actividades son incluidas con su admisión o son gratis para los miembros de Thanksgiving Point. Para aprender mas de lo que es ser miembro de Thanksgiving Point puede visitar la página de los miembros.

Antique Tulips

Don't forget to check out our historic and rare tulip bulbs at this year's festival. Some of our antique bulbs include:

Duc van Tol Red & Yellow - 1595
Once grown in gardens and forced for Christmas bloom, the ‘Duc van Tols’ are a fabled clan of fifteen varieties of pixie tulips and are a landmark variety in the whole amazing history of tulips.

Absalon - 1780
An intricately patterned late blooming tulip with swirling flames of dark chocolate and chestnut on gold in a group known as the ‘Dutch Bizarres’. Most people have never even seen a brown tulip, let alone one as superbly decorated as this.

Thank you to Hortus Bulborum for supplying the Antique Tulips in our display. Hortus Bulborum is a living museum in Limmen, Noord-Holland, Netherlands that is entirely devoted to the conservation of historic and rare bulb varieties.
