The art of tulip bulb growing began in Holland. It was when an immigrant named George Gibbs went to the island of Orcas and noticed how beautiful they grew. Through growing trials the flowers flourished. Later on in time a man named William Roozen had the knowledge passed down to him. In 1946, he came to the U.S. and in 1955 bought the Washington Bulb Company. His knowledge of Tulip growing allowed for one of the biggest fields of Tulips in the U.S. Now there is an annual festival where everyone can enjoy the splendor.
