Give me all the Parrots. The twists, the turns, the full blown! I have not met a Parrot tulip I didn't like...well, LOVE. Fringy edges on orange peach silk taffeta with little hand painted touches of cream and green flames. Gorgeous with Mango Charm and Apricot Impression.
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.
