The tulips in front of the Niagara Parks Floral Clock along the Niagara River Parkway in Queenston, Ontario, are plentiful and colorful, and people like to stop and admire the flowers whenever they travel the parkway.

The Niagara Parks Floral Clock is just that, a clock that is constructed entirely out of flowers, but is also a working clock. It is maintained all the time by Ontario Hydro so that the flowers grow and the clock doesn't stop working as this attraction is almost as famous as the Falls!

There are 16,000 beds of flowers that create this clock; tulips being just one species of flower that is grown here. However, the flowers are changed twice a year to reflect the seasons, and while some say this is a waste of flowers and plants, it has always been this way, as long as the clock has been working.

Tulips are not native to North America, so they had to be introduced here, and although they are mostly associated with Holland, and when one thinks of Tulips they think of Holland, the name and flower originally came from Persia and the Turkish people garnered the fame for the flower in Europe. Tulips are a spring flower, so they go with the clock when the design and flowers are changed for the spring season as they grow best in cooler weather with an early summer.
