Tulip SVG – is a perennial flowering plant, belongs to the department of flowering, the class of monocotyledon, the order of the lily flowers, the family of lilies, the genus of the tulip.
Where did the word “tulip” come from?
In European languages the name of the tulip flower came from the Ottoman-Persian dictionary. The word “tülbend” denoted a fabric for a national headdress. Later this concept began to correspond not only to the material of which it was made, but also to the turban itself, which had an external resemblance to the flower. Probably, the borrowing took place almost simultaneously in the countries of Eastern and Western Europe, so the Italian “tulipano”, Polish “tulipan”, as well as German “tulpe” and Dutch “tulp”, which lost the ending “an”, have a common root. In Russian, the word tulip entered as a free reading of the Polish name of the plant.

Tulips are herbaceous plants, which are characterized by a very short vegetation period. In the morphological structure of the tulips are distinguished:
Tulips with ovate or pear-shaped tulips. The top of the bulb is covered with covering scales. In the outer appearance of the bulb, a flattened bottom and a pointed tip can be clearly seen. The size of the tulip bulb, the colouring and the shape of the scales vary depending on the species. Inside it there are special flakes that supply the plant with nutrients. After all the reserves have been exhausted, the tulip bulb dies out, and in its place several new ones appear. The life expectancy of the bulb in natural conditions does not exceed 2 years.
Tulip root located at the bottom of the bulb. At the young seedling stage, the plant has one main root, which dies out after the first vegetation period. Subsequently, the tulip annually grows a new root system consisting of many thread-shaped roots.
Stolon, which is a kind of underground plant stem. It is used for annual vegetative reproduction of tulip bulbs. The table serves to deepen the bulb’s bud into the ground, as well as for its protection and nutrition.
Fruit-bearing upright tulip stem of cylindrical shape, on which are located from 1 to 9-12 leaves. At the end of the season the stem dies out. The height of the tulip stem depends on the type and variety of plant and can be from 15 to 70 cm.
Tulip leaves, which have an elongated pointed or elongated oval shape. The tulips are placed directly on the stem, tightly wrapped around it. Some species have ridge-shaped growths on the leaf surface.
Tulip flowers, which consist of three inner and three outer petals. Hybrid tulip species may have more petals. Usually one bud is formed on one plant, although there are tulip species, which are characterized by the development of several buds. The shape of the tulip flower can be oval, star, bowl, terry, goblet or fringe, and the tulip color can be monochrome, mixed or two-color. Color of tulips depends on the combination of anthocyanins, carotenoids and flavonoids – natural dyes. In healthy plants, inflorescences are directed strictly upwards, although in some varieties of tulips there are flower noses of the deceased type.
The tulip fruit, which is a rounded box of trihedral shape. Inside it there are triangular or egg-shaped tulip seeds, which after maturation fall to the ground and are carried by the wind.
Types and varieties of tulips are names and photographs.
There is still no strict and clear classification of Tulip SVG species. Most of the known systems are complex, confusing and constantly changing. The most successful today is considered to be the horticultural classification, which divides all 113 species of tulips and their countless hybrids into 4 main groups of flowering time.
