Tulips were introduced in the western world by the Viennese ambassador to Turkey, Ghislain de Busbecq, who wrote about the flowers he had seen in 1551 in the Turkish Edirne. Later, he sent them some seeds to Austria. The arrival of a cargo tulip bulbs in 1562 in Antwerp marked the beginning of the European tulip cultivation. The first documented specimens were planted by Carolus Clusius in which he led from 1593 Hortus Botanicus Leiden. The majority of the cultivated forms of the tulip are derived from Tulipa gesneriana. Ottoman sultans wore a tulip on their turban as a symbol. The name tulip is therefore derived from the Persian word meaning tulipan what turban.
