A great walk in Tulip City this time of year is through the 10 tulip gardens that encircle Tulip Lake in the city park. The gardens, each devoted to a different tulip variety, including one to Queen of the Night tulips, abut each other with Tulip Walk passing through each once as it circles the lake. Each garden surrounds a statue of one of the city's illustrious citizens, including one of Tulip City notable Janet O'Brien; each honored person was famous in his or her day in some way, with one being an early explorer of Antarctica. From the clues below, can you find the order in which the 10 tulip gardens clockwise fringe Tulip Lake: the variety of tulip in the bed, the person whose statue is among the garden's flowers, and why he or she has been honored by Tulip City? (Note: all location information in the clues is in clockwise order.)
