Whimsical Tulips
The spectacular ‘plumage’ on our Tulip Weber’s Parrot flaunts large 8” blossoms. Flowers feature creamy white ruffled petals kissed with bright pink and randomly streaked with green accents. Each flower is unique, and the flowers’ hues are affected by weather and temperature. Warmer temps will bring more pink tones. Parrot Tulips are the largest and most spectacular of all Tulips. They are known for their curled, feathered, and twisted petals. A showstopper – this parrot will not quietly sit by unnoticed! Their large blossoms make a dramatic statement in the garden. Excellent cut flowers too.

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.
