Tulip General Information

Parrot tulips are well known for their feathered, twisted, and curled petals. Bright and large colored blossoms make this variety a popular choice for the garden. Because the flowers are big and full, they like protection from wind.

Tulip Plant Care

Plant in sunny, well drained soil at least 6" deep and 6" apart. Foliage should not be removed until it is spent to promote bulb strength. Stems can be cut back to maintain appearances if desired. Interested in forcing bulbs? Visit our Useful Links page.
