Switch lit up bulb (5)


I believe the answer is:


'bulb' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'switch lit up' is the wordplay.
'switch' is an anagram indicator.
'litup' with letters rearranged gives 'TULIP'.

(Other definitions for tulip that I've seen before include "Plant at the centre of the Dutch financial bubble of 1637" , "Spring-blooming plant" , "cause of mania once" , "Spring-flowering plant" , "Plant, it's name shares an origin with turban" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian and The Globe and Mail.
