Parrot Tulip Collection Description

A Feather in Your Gardening Hat
There truly aren't enough words to describe parrot tulips, a group that includes some of the most beautiful and colourful of all tulips. These flowers begin life as plump, green buds and remain entirely green until they open, when they start transforming into large, kaleidoscopic blooms reminiscent of a parrot's plumage.
Our Dutch tulip pros have selected some of the finest varieties available for this Parrot Tulip Collection. The bulbs you'll receive were bred to produce large, cup-shaped, multiplehued flowers—all with those signature feather-like petals—with no two exactly alike. They will add colour, texture and drama to your landscape like nothing you've ever seen!

About Parrot Tulips
These magnificent tulips have huge, cup-shaped blooms with ruffled and fringed petals that take on a feathery appearance. Add in their profuse splashes and streaks of brilliant colour, and the flowers evoke the image of a certain tropical bird known for mimicking human speech!
Growers in Holland started cultivating parrot tulips during the 18th century. With their vivid hues, exotic look and large flowers measuring nearly 5" across, these showy varieties deserve a prominent location in your garden bed, border or vase where they can be on full display.

Includes 5 each of Jan van Nes Parrot, Rainbow Parrot, Black Parrot, Super Parrot and Apricot Parrot
  • Jan van Nes Parrot: A resplendent parrot bearing bright, canary-yellow blooms laden with feathered petals. Sensational wherever it's grown and goes well with all colours in the garden. Equally at home in a vase or bouquet. Grows 22" tall.
  • Rainbow Parrot:Lavish, fragrant variety features a full, feathery form highlighted by splashes of yellow, green and rich brownish red. Plant in a seasonal border or use as a striking addition to fresh-cut arrangements. Grows 12–14" tall.
  • Black Parrot: This beloved tulip's dark, wavy, heavily frilled blooms appear in late spring. The exterior of the petals is deep purple while the inside is blackish purple. An excellent choice for cut-flower arrangements. Grows 20–22" tall.
  • Super Parrot: Super white, super fringed flowers are marked with dark green flames and streaks that are mostly visible on the outer petals. Elegant, deeply cut blooms open wide, nearly flattening out. Lovely in a vase or bouquet. Grows 16" tall..
  • Apricot Parrot: With its kaleidoscope of colours, it electrifies border plantings and garden beds. A fabulously feathery flower, it boasts a bright orange-apricot coat accented with shades of bright pink and vivid green. Fragrant. Grows 16–18" tall.
