Planting Tulips for Canada's 150th Birthday
Here's Heino Lilles and his tulip crew planting 400 special bulbs for Canada's 150th birthday. They will be in bloom in the spring of 2017 in front of City Hall.
The Canada 150 tulip’s elegant white bloom with red flames bears a striking resemblance to our maple leaf flag. The National Capital Commission (NCC) has partnered with the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Home Hardware, exclusive retailer of this special tulip bulb, and Communities in Bloom for the selection and distribution of the Canada 150 tulip.
