The Keukenhof, the gardens and tulip fields that are one of the Netherlands top attractions has decided to name a special hybrid tulip after KLM.
The Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade emphasized KLM's economic importance to the flower industry. "KLM's success as an airline echoes the wider success of the Dutch logistics industry. Frederique van der Wal, current owner of the lifestyle and flower collection, "Frederique's Choice," was invited to join in the naming ceremony with Peter Hartman, KLM CEO.
Bouquets of KLM tulips will be on view at Schiphol Airport in the days to come. The airport will have its own "mini-Keukenhof" in Terminal 2 at Schiphol Plaza. If you are flying into or through Schiphol be sure to look for the display.
The new hybrid tulip is called ‘Tulipa KLM’ and can be ordered online at http://www.klm.com/.
