However, according to some accounts, the name has its origins in the Persian word for turban, which is 'toliban', while others say that it is actually a Turkish word, 'tulbend', which also means turban, that the name has been derived from. Why turban? Well, when the flower is inverted, it is said to look like a turban.
✦ Since tulips come in various sizes, there is no particular depth that can be recommended for planting them. However, in order to get an approximate idea about the depth at which the bulbs should be planted, measure the size, then multiply that with three, and that is the depth you should plant the bulb in.
✦ Tulips thrive in a fair amount of sun. Experts recommend that they be planted in partial shade. They require plenty of water. If there is enough rainfall in your area, then that is enough. However, in regions that are warm throughout the year, you need to ensure that your plants are watered at least once in a week.
