Floral Diary: How to Reflex Tulips

Reflexing tulips is a fun way to elevate any tulip. And it is so easy!


To reflex a tulip, all you need to do is gently peel back and bend each petal outwards. Start with the outer petals and work your way in to the center petals.

You will then have a beautifully opened tulip.



This is perfect for tulips that are a few days old. I love giving new life to a flower arrangement !
