BULBOUS PLANT WEEKS 6th - 21st APRIL

06 April 2024

Every year usually from 6th to 21st of April, takes place the traditional “BULBOUS PLANT WEEKS” in the Botanic Gardens of Villa Taranto. Captain Neil McEacharn in 1957 initiated this event, for the first time. Especially, in this period, you will become eyewitness of a real view and sparking firework of colours with 80.000 bulbs in flower – among this, is indisputable and explicit protagonist the tulip flower.

Inside the park was created a serpentine alley, called “Tulip’s Maze” where are planted in near distance almost 30.000 bulbs, making part of over 70 varieties. Relating to colours and forms among these jut out the black tulip “Queen of night”, the Yellow tulip " Micky Mouse" and the "Giant Orange Sunset"... the largest tulip in the world.
