We love the unique, flamboyant blooms of Parrot Tulips. Called "Parrot" for the feathery and scalloped petals which twist and stretch toward the light creating an ever changing bloom show. All the shades and tones of apricot are in this one. Sunset pink flames adorn a crinkly petal that reminds me of a silk taffeta ballgown. Suitable for cutting, forcing, or planting in the garden.
Combine this most romantic tulip with La Belle Epoque, Black Parrot and Brown Sugar for a vase ready combination straight out of Renoir.
Tulips grow best in zones 4-7 where colder winters are more common. When planting outdoors most classes of tulips do not return every year, with the exception of the Darwin Hybrids and species. We grow them in pots and crates and compost the bulbs after they bloom.
