If you're wondering why I included so many red-and-white striped tulips (from old Dutch master still lifes), it's because they fascinate me. They are a now-extinct cultivar in which the stripes were caused by a virus. This cultivar, Semper Augustus, was the most expensive tulip sold during the tulip mania of the 1630s.
