Tulip Apricot Parrot


Delivery: End Aug to Feb

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.

Parrot tulips almost always show a display of multiple colours. In time the fringed flowers will open completely for maximum exposure. If you pick your parrot tulips in the garden, their strong stems will guarantee a long vase life. Rememer to plant them somewhat sheltered from heavy wind and rain, as the open flowers are vulnerable.
