Tulips come in all colours of the spectrum from red and orange, to green and yellow, to purple and pink, yet ‘true blue’, the holy grail of the horticulturist colour wheel, has always managed to elude the tulip family. That’s not to say there aren’t some wonderful, blue-toned tulips on the market, however. For centuries, the best tulip breeders have set their sights on cultivating the bluest tulips possible, and there are several stunning varieties that come pretty close to fitting the bill.

Why are blue tulips so rare?
The colour blue occurs more sparsely in nature than any other colour. This may be one of the reasons that blue flowers are so especially prized by horticulturists and gardeners. To date, nobody has quite managed to breed a tulip in an absolute shade of blue, so the blue tulips on the market tend to have a slight lavender or lilac tone to them.
