If you stopped by the Ottawa Tulip Festival this year, you may have seen a very special red and white tulip abloom. This is the Canada 150 tulip, specially grown to resemble Canada’s colours as the official tulip of Canada’s 150th anniversary celebration next year.
The new tulip should be made available at participating Home Hardware stores this month.
I encourage all residents to keep their eyes peeled as this tulip is certain to be a popular sprout in all Canadian flowerbeds this spring. And as the nation’s official host of Canada’s 150th birthday celebration all year, Ottawa is sure to be growing their red and white with pride.
