If you live in the San Francisco area and you share our love of flowers, then you’ll have to stem your excitement over tomorrow’s holiday.
In honor of American Tulip Day, over 100,000 tulips will be free for the picking on Saturday March 2nd.
The tulip garden, which is being displayed at Union Park, will be open to the public between 1PM and 4:30PM.

“The tulips, which were planted in America, were produced from Dutch flower bulbs. Dutch traders export flower bulbs to more than 100 countries all over the world,” says the American Tulip Day website.
“And America is by far the biggest export market for Dutch-grown tulip bulbs: a half billion of them every year. Besides, Dutch companies also export many other types of flower bulbs to America, such as lilies, hyacinths, daffodils, dahlias and gladioli.”
