Bulb Mosaic, 'Romance in Flowers' at Keukenhof



LISSE, Netherlands, October 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

On Thursday 5 October 2017, Keukenhof's gardeners planted the first bulbs for the flower mosaic, 'Romance in Flowers'. This marked the start of the planting of seven million bulbs for the coming year's display.  

In 2018, Keukenhof's theme will be 'Romance in Flowers'. After all, romance and flowers are inseparable.

The historic park was created in the middle of the Romantic period (1857) as an ornamental garden for Kasteel Keukenhof. The atmospheric outlay surrounding the pond with its beautiful perspectives and centuries-old beech trees has seen millions of bulbs flower since 1950. Many generations experienced their moment of joy there.

In 2018, Keukenhof will have another, wonderful 50,000 tulip mosaic. The latter has been planted in two layers to extend its flowering during the spring. The mosaic is 250 m2 in size.  50,000 bulbs were used: tulips, grape hyacinths and crocuses.

Keukenhof is of exceptional importance to Dutch tourism. Annually, over 1 million visitors, from over 100 countries are received. 75% of these are from abroad. The principal countries of origin are: Germany, the United States, France, the United Kingdom and China. There has, in recent years, been a marked increase in the number of visitors from the United States, China, India and South-East Asia. The bulb sector, and tulips and Keukenhof in particular, are determinative for the Netherlands' touristic image.

In 2018 Keukenhof will be open from 22 March - 13 May.
