A Family's American Dream In Bloom

Originally published in Celina Lifestyle

Texas Tulips began as a dream for Pieter and Petra Koeman. Working in the tulip industry in their native Netherlands, they set their goal to bring a tulip farm to America. 

The couple researched soil conditions and weather history to find just the right conditions for their blooms to thrive. Their tulip fields now grow in Pilot Point, Celina's neighbor to the west. 

Every year, the farm imports thousands of fresh bulbs from Holland, where Pieter’s family has been in the tulip business for decades. Texas Tulips boast colorful rows and rows of blooms in a variety of shapes and sizes. 

Tulip Season in Texas is a little unpredictable, as it relies on the weather but typical season starts mid February and ends in early April.
