About the Parkinson’s Tulip
The Parkinson’s Tulip is a symbol associated with raising awareness of Parkinson’s worldwide.
In 1980 , Dutch Horticulturalist J,W.S Van Der Wereld decided to honour Dr.James Parkinson, the first to describe Parkinson’s in 1817 by naming a tulip after him. It thus became a symbol for Parkinson’s Disease.
