Baptism of the Royal tulip
"Royal Łazienki" – it is the name of the new tulip cultivated in the Netherlands for the Royal Łazienki, in cooperation with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The official baptism took place on 12 May 2017 in the Palace on the Isle.
The "Royal Łazienki" tulip was baptised by Professor Zbigniew Wawer, Director of the Royal Łazienki Museum and Raphael Varga, Charge d’Affaires of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
The flower is white and green – colours which allude to the tones of 18th century architecture and the colours which King Stanisław August chose to surround himself with. Among other objects, wooden flower pots standing in the Royal gardens were painted in white and green stripes.
"Royal Łazienki" is a late season flowering species of tulip and it is just starting to bloom in the Łazienki gardens. Our guests will be able to admire it around the fountain on the terrace of the Palace on the Isle, by the beech growing nearby, and near the South Pond.
The "Royal Łazienki" tulip is the next fruit of the Polish-Dutch cooperation in the Royal Łazienki. Earlier, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands aided the creation of the Dutch Flower Garden near the Old Orangery.
