Flowers are up to 8"-and each one is unique. Some are pink and creamy white with green accents. Some have more pink tones. Some have more creamy white. Some even have hints of light purple. The flowers' colors change during flowering-and the weather has an effect, with warm weather bringing out more pink tones.
With their exotic shape, color and design, these sensational tulips resemble their namesake tropical birds. Parrot tulips are the largest and most spectacular of all tulips. Frilled, ruffled and flared petals are splashed and striped with brilliant color combinations that are unlike those of any other tulip. They bloom on tall stems amid striking green foliage. Plant them in focal spots for a dazzling floral sensation...a decorator's delight!
