The Semper Augustus tulip no longer exists, but 17th-century botanical paintings of the flower confirm its beauty. This watercolor from the early 1600s (artist unknown) has been repaired and resized for modern frames.
During the Dutch Tulip Mania of the 17th-century, the Semper Augustus tulip was the most prized flower on the market - 10 bulbs cost more than a house! The market peaked in 1673 and then collapsed.
