The tulip is a wonderful and simple spring flower that can hold its own in centerpieces and bouquets.  However, you can add almost any other flower to the tulip arrangement such as callas, ranunculus, roses and peonies in order to create more visual interest to special items.  Use the parrot/ bi-color/ fringe hybrids to create extra drama and depth to your floral designs.
