WOW!® Parrot Tulip Collection

WOW!® Parrot Tulip Collection

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 6 bulbs each of Yellow Madonna Parrot, Black Parrot, Rainbow Parrot, Apricot Parrot and Negrita Parrot
  • Yellow Madonna Parrot: The supple, plumy petals on the outside of each large flower can range in colour from golden yellow to soft yellow to almost white. The outer petals are boldly accented by dark green markings. Height: 16-18".
  • 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.

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
