This is one of the most elegant tulips, exemplifying the parrot nature of showy feathers and personality. Ruffled and fanned white petals are streaked with green feathering for contrast. It really is super. Combined with white daffodils like Thalia, it is serene.
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.
