The tulip bulbs are imported from Holland, a popular destination for people during springtime. The Botanic Gardens say the cool, wet winter slowed the blooming process, but now those flowers are popping with both color and fragrance.

“They’re really fragrant. You can actually smell them like all throughout the gardens,” explained Sonya Anderson, the Horticulture Specialist. “People love it, especially when the bloom is really full.”

Anderson said if you want to see the tulips, you’ll want to check them out sooner than later. Warmer weather will make the flowers bloom quicker.
