A beautiful photography of a red Tulip among a display of red and white tulips. The image was taken at the Cheek Wood Gardens in Nashville TN. The over cast day provided nice even lighting. I added an effect to give the photo a painterly look. Also while photographing the tulip I chose a shallow depth of field so that only the red tulip would really stand out among all of the others.
The tulip is a perennial, bulbous plant with showy flowers in the genus Tulipa, of which around 75 wild species are currently accepted and which belongs to the family Liliaceae. The genus's native range extends west to the Iberian Peninsula, through North Africa to Greece, the Balkans, Turkey, throughout the Levant (Syria, Israel, Lebanon, Jordan) and Iran, North to Ukraine, southern Siberia and Mongolia, and east to the Northwest of China. The tulip's centre of diversity is in the Pamir, Hindu Kush, and Tien Shan mountains.It is a typical element of steppe and winter-rain Mediterranean vegetation. A number of species and many hybrid cultivars are grown in gardens, as potted plants, or as cut flowers.
