"As you know, our singular pleasure exists in garden and flower culture," Karl Wilhelm expressed in a letter. His pleasure gardens contained thousands of flowers. He was also rumored to have had countless tulip girls. As legend goes, these young ladies are said to have been responsible for the paintings in the Book of Tulips. What is undeniable is that Karl Wilhelm was surrounded by a large flock of ladies. Even his contemporaries commented on it.
