The City of Edmonton is inviting Edmontonians to locate specially bred tulips honouring Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation at parks around the city.
The tulips were bred in the Netherlands to recognize Canada’s sesquicentennial.
Municipalities across Canada planted the bulbs last fall, but many horticulturalists were surprised to find that not all the tulips came up red and white. Many in fact were yellow and orange, but nobody knows why.
Edmontonians are invited to snap a selfie with the flowers and post it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, tagging the post #YegParks.
