Lambada comes from a Portuguese word that means something like encourage or inspire. And just like the dance, this is exactly what this Tulip does to you. At least, it is what it does for me. I know the bulb grower Van Lierop well, and every spring I come to admire his flower fields at least a couple of times. Every year the highlight of his selection is the field filled with Lambada’s, especially in full bloom. Truly, her beauty is unmatched. The soft colors and warmth that she radiates are breathtaking.
