Each year, Thanksgiving Point's horticultural team designs an entirely new display, importing tulips from Holland and hand-planting more than 250,000 tulip bulbs and 500,000 other flower bulbs each fall. Hundreds of varieties will bloom this spring, creating an impressive display during the month-long event.

This highly scented, tulip-flowered tulip has a bright sunny yellow color and is registered in the International Register of Tulip Names.
