Tulip Apricot Parrot
Delivery: From end August
The Apricot Parrot Tulip produces towering apricot variegated flowers punctuated with ivory, pink and green.
Gradually revealing a particularly unique appearance reminiscent of the colorful and textured plumage of a parrot, this Royal Horticultural Society award-winning tulip will light up sunny borders, beds and pots from the end of April.
Superb planted in mass, it also mixes wonderfully with a wide range of bulbs and spring plants; we particularly like pairing it with a selection of orange, pink and purple flowers.
The Apricot Parrot tulip has excellent vase life; please note that due to the size of their flowers, parrot tulips may have a tendency to curl.
