Parrot Tulip Apricot Parrot

Parrot Tulip Apricot Parrot

Like a vivid kaleidoscope, this heavily feathered, award-winning parrot tulip boasts a bright orange-apricot coat accented with shades of bright pink and vivid green. Yet despite its flashy facade, Apricot Parrot is a sweetly romantic tulip cultivar with soft, supple petals and a delicate, light perfume. It makes a perfect complement to traditional, single-hued tulips in border displays and mid-spring garden beds. Landscapes with plenty of sunny sites are ideal spaces for this uniquely lovely variety. Like most tulips, it is easy to grow and maintain, requiring only well-drained soil to thrive. Your customers will love these beautiful tulips in fresh bouquets and floral arrangements, too.
