This is a story about a flower that has made man mad.

Greed, desire, anguish, devotion have all played their part...

No other flower has ever carried so much cultural baggage;

it charts political upheavals, illuminates social behaviour...

plots the ebb and flow of religious persecution.

Anna Pavord, The Tulip

Semper Augustus was a Rosen tulip, but to call it simply a red and white flower would be like describing rubies and emeralds as red and green stones.
