Tulip 'Caribbean Parrot'

Tulipa

Hardy Bulb

This flamboyant parrot tulip produces feathery yellow petals, each with a fiery orange-red edge, creating tropical, eye-catching flowers. The large and frilly blooms of Tulip 'Caribbean Parrot' are held on strong, sturdy stems, making them excellent as cut flowers for a vase indoors. This extraordinary tulip makes a really unusual display in spring borders and containers where it flowers later in the spring season. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 15cm (6"). Bulb size 11/12.

Plant tulip bulbs in late summer or autumn. Tulips will grow well in any moist, well drained soil, except for particularly wet soils. Choose a sunny position that is sheltered from strong winds. When planting tulip bulbs avoid shallow planting as this may reduce the winter cold period that is essential for tulip bulbs to produce flowers in spring. Plant them at a depth of 15cm (6") and at a distance of 13cm (5") apart.
After flowering, deadhead the faded tulip flowers and allow the foliage to die back completely before removing it in summer. Caution: Tulip bulbs are an irritant to skin and eyes, and are harmful if eaten.
