San Francisco’s wholesome Flower Bulb Day is officially on the city’s calendar for March 5, 2022 from 1-4:30pm. The gorgeous outdoor garden will cover Union Square with 100,000 tulips, all of which are free for visitors to pick and take home!
Visitors can pick a max of 15 tulips each, and are encouraged to use public transportation as crowds are expected. The March 5 event is meant to celebrate International Women’s Day, which is on March 8.
Floral designers Sarah Campbell and Jordan Marx will be at the event creating a vibrant floral gown made out of tulips. They’ve appeared on Netflix’s ‘The Big Flower Fight’ and many other programs.
The tulip bulbs are imported from Europe but grown here in the United States in special greenhouse conditions. You can keep your bouquet alive and thriving by cutting the stems on an angle and displaying them in a place that won’t get too warm and isn’t near any fresh fruit. They’ll continue to bloom even after they’re cut.
Union Square’s display will have a rainbow of colors available. Certain colors have special meanings: red for perfect love, yellow for happiness, white for forgiveness, and a mixed bunch for elegance.
Make sure to catch this year’s Flower Bulb Day event on March 5 at Union Square from 1-4:30pm.
