15,000 tulips to celebrate Dutch Tulip Days

The Royal Netherlands Embassy will celebrate Dutch Tulip Days 2018 at the residence of Ambassador Henne Schuwer, April 18-20, with a series of special events highlighting the US- Dutch relationship in horticulture, trade, and international relations.

Ten thousand tulips and orchids in red, white, blue and orange arrangements, designed by Susanne Schrijvers, will decorate the Ambassador’s Embassy Row residence in Washington, D.C. The Neoclassical Revival house, built in 1929, is a perfect setting to showcase the Dutch expertise in horticulture.

The Netherlands is well known for its floral industry and it is No. 1 in the world for greenhouse horticulture, export of fresh vegetables, and production of seeds. Fifty percent of the world’s trade in floricultural products and 24 percent of the world’s trade in horticultural products is in Dutch hands. An estimated two billion tulip bulbs are yearly produced in the Netherlands.

At the end of the Dutch Tulip Days, the embassy will donate the flowers to local institutions.
