There are at least 3700 different varieties of tulips. And there are many different tulip colors too. Every year I photograph lots and lots of tulips at the Keukenhof Garden in the Netherlands and I can’t get enough of all the different shape, size and colors. Have a look at the different tulip colors.
Different tulip colors:
- White tulips – in the range from pure white to white with a more cream look. White tulips are perfect for stunning wedding bouquets.
- Pink tulips – One of the world favorite tulip colors! From soft pastel pink to the hard pink (almost red) you can see them at Keukenhof.
- Red tulips – Red tulips are one of he traditional tulip colors but you can find a lot of tulip varieties in this red color
- Orange tulips – Orange is the color of Holland and you can find orange tulips especially around Kings Day in the Netherlands.
- Yellow tulips – the bright yellow tulips are very popular around the world. Combined with the traditional red tulips you can find them in gardens and tulip festivals around the world.
- Green tulips – Green tulips look very different, it almost look that nature forgot to give their color to these flowers.
- Blue tulips – blue tulips only exist by photoshop or paint. There are some tulips with blue in their name but those tulips are more purple than blue.
- Purple tulips – Purple tulips are very popular especially when they are mixed with white or yellow colors.
- Black tulips – Black tulips look rather unusual, their dark colors are not actual black but a very dark form of purple. But in the right light they appear black.
- Duo colored tulips – Besides the solid tulip colors there are many tulip varieties that have two or more colors like red and yellow tulips or white and purple tulips.
