What makes Hortus Bolborum so special?

What is unique about this garden is that it contains hundreds of varieties of flower bulbs dating back well before 1990, which are hardly grown commercially anymore, if at all. The oldest species date back to the sixteenth century, such as Fritillaria Persica from 1577. Legendary tulips such as “Duc van Tol Red and Yellow “from 1595, the tulip “Zomerschoon” from 1620- hugely popular during the tulip mania – and the whimsical parakeet tulip “Perfecta “from 1750 can still be admired.
