Tulips were first cultivated by the Turks in around 1000AD and the planting of tulips in gardens became fashionable throughout the Ottoman Empire. Although now synonymous with Holland, tulips were first imported into the country in the 16th century by Oghier Ghislain de Busbecq, an ambassador of Emperor Ferdinand I to Suleyman the Magnificent.

The tulip motif permeated Ottoman decorative art and feature heavily throughout embroidery and Iznik Ceramics.

April through to early May, Istanbul hosts an annual tulip festival celebrated all over the city.
