Tulipa Aladdin

What a firecracker of a tulip! It is as if someone had literally let the genie out of the bottle. Bright, crimson red petals are super-pointed and recurved with a vivid yellow edge to look like tongues of flames leaping from Aladdin's lamp. In fact these flame like flowers inspired Sufi poets to consider lily shaped tulips as manifestations of Allah's spirit in the world and were revered as such. Planting them in a garden was a sacred act. With a yellow base to the flower and leaves that mimic the form of the petal Aladdin is a striking and very tempting tulip. To own some Aladdins should definitely be one of your three wishes.

Aladdin's cave

This tulip should definitely not be hidden in a cave but placed centre stage in some very prominent part of your garden to earn the gasps of admiration it richly deserves. With a tulip as forceful in personality as this, there is no point in trying to tone it down. Either assemble a mass of them in an urn so that it looks like a burning brazier or surround Aladdin with other flaming tulips, Burning Heart, Apeldoorn, Burgundy Lace, to create a bonfire of colour next spring. With its brilliant colouring Aladdin is a stand-out winner in a bedding scheme surrounded by low growing hedges or even in a gravel garden where its blooms will look like flares.

 The Aladdin Tulip Story

The image of Lily Tulips was often used in Turkestani art by the 11th century when the Seljuks, a Sunni tribe, were in power in what is now Turkey. Their representation as divine fire was immortalised in the sacred poetry of Rumi in 1200. As a consequence of this cultural history tulips came to signify wealth, peace, elegance, political and godly power during the Ottoman Empire. Aladdin itself was actually introduced onto the market in 1942.
