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: 40-45 cm.
  • 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 30-35 cm 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 50-55 cm tall.
  • Negrita Parrot: This generously feathered, fancy relative of Tulip Negrita offers vibrant violet flowers, sometimes with thin green striping on the outer petals. It adds an extra dose of drama and fun to the garden.Height: 40 cm.
  • 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 40-45 cm tall.
