Rembrandt Tulips: Developed around 1610. A bold contrasting streak of color is the most notable characteristic of this class. Tall stems hold mid-size flowers with feathering of contrasting colors, and blooms are often the focal point in paintings. They make excellent cut flowers. These are like the famous mottled or “broken”-color tulips that launched a frenzy of trading, culminating in the near collapse of the Dutch economy in 1637. The era became known as “Tulipmania.” The tulips were called “Rembrandts,” stemming from the abundance of tulips infamous Dutch Master paintings in this era, which was known as the Golden Age of Dutch Painting. Curiously, tulips were not a prominent theme in Rembrandt’s own work. These originally broken varieties are the predecessors of contemporary Rembrandt tulips. Tulips look best in mass plantings. They make good container plants and are delightful cut flowers.
