The Swedish people are very fond of tulips. Especially during the long Swedish winter the tulip is popular as a cut flower. But also in Gardens and city parks the tulip often is planted to be enjoyed by the gardener and public. So, it is obvious that this beautiful tulip is named after a beautiful Swedish city. As well the tulip as the city Uppsala are worth inspecting. A nice detail for the true botanist among us: Uppsala is the place of birth of Carolus Linaeus.
