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. Super moody and dramatic clothed in the deepest shades of maroon, burgundy--as close to black as I've seen in a tulip. The petals are particularly ruffled and fringed. Beautiful with almost any other shade, Black Parrot brings flair to the vase. All of our varieties are suitable for cutting, forcing, or planting in the garden.
Combine this most romantic tulip with Apricot Parrot, Apricot Giant, Mango Charm, La Belle Epoque and Brown Sugar for a vase ready combination straight out of Renoir.
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.
