Blossoming Tulips of Skegit Valley

In 1940s in the marchy valley Skegit there settled a family of immigrants from Holland. The bog of Skeget occupied a huge territory. And why tulips aren't boggy flowers? The company  opened by that family calls itself the biggest producer of tulips. 
And in our days, each year, approximately all population of state Washington and British Columbia come to the little village in the valley to see the wonderful tulips. Very many wonderful tulips.
The tulips blossom in industrial scale, but it's not quite clear why. Only those tulips whose glomes haven't opened yet can be sold to stores, but on the other hand, tourists wouldn't come to see at such tulips that don't blossom. One has to pay to enter the territory, but not much and not everywhere.
