'Blue Tulips' original drawing with coloured pencils by Dutch nature artist Paula Kuitenbrouwer, owner of ArtsBooksCrafts, and author of 'Birds, Butterflies, Fish & Botany'.

Plants that have a blue colour need alkaline -meaning, having a pH greater than 7 and therefore basic- conditions. Tulips prefer neutral to slightly acidic soil. Maybe that is why you can't find blue tulips. Tulip come in a wide variety of colours, except pure blue (several tulips with "blue" in the name have a faint violet hue). Except when you draw them with all colours blue, like I did. Blue Tulips are a beautiful illusion.
