Experience the feel of the islands in your own garden with a row of Caribbean Parrot Tulips. These exuberant yellow flowers, with their flaming red borders, add an exotic look to any flower bed when they bloom in mid to late spring. The wild, vibrant colours and billowy, ruffled petals of this unique tulip really put on a show.

Plant these red and yellow parrot tulips in the fall, in zones 3 to 8. Place your Dutch-sourced bulbs in the soil 6 inches deep with the tips facing upward, and space them 3 to 6 inches apart. These perennials need half sun and half shade to achieve their colourful splendour, and they perform best in well drained soil that is either clay, loamy or sandy. You can expect your parrot tulip bulbs to grow to a height of 16 to 18 inches.

The unusual combination of bold shades and feathery petals make these parrot tulip bulbs distinctive additions to your garden. Add them to borders and beds for a showy display or plant them under deciduous trees and shrubs to make semi-shaded areas stand out. This flower's strong stem makes it perfect for cutting and arranging in a vase. Create a tropical paradise this springtime with colourful and vivacious Caribbean parrot tulips.
