This was sent to us last year by mistake. Talk about serendipity! Our Dutch supplier identified it as “Parrot Prince” and we ordered more this year. Blooming very early for a parrot, it worked well with the double early tulips, daffodils and hyacinth. The feathering is so delicate it looks like the tiny teeth on a flycatcher plant. A fantastic mixer and stunning on its own!
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 of our varieties are suitable for cutting, forcing, or planting in the garden.
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.
Parrot/Mid. 18-20” stem length. Contains 15 bulbs.
