The scoop on Tulip Caribbean Parrot

Sighted recently at a highly regarded botanic garden, these Caribbean Parrot tulips captured attention and sparked a lively debate. "Oh, yes, those are tulips!" "No, tulips don't look that wild!" It's easy to understand the confusion as Caribbean Parrot tulips aren't your average spring flowers. Illuminating the garden in tropical shades of yellow, pink and coral, washed across petals that resemble parrot wings, these take tulips to a whole different level. Does your garden need some excitement? Here you go!

Why Grow Double and Parrot Tulips?

  • Fully double or peony form tulip flowers and parrot blooms with wild colors and fanciful shapes; these tulips get noticed
  • Plant in groups of 5 or more for strong visual impact
  • Plant these jazzy hybrid tulips where their form and complex colors can be appreciated up close

Parrot tulips were hugely popular in the Netherlands in the 18th century and prices for these specialty flowers were sky high. Now, you can scoop ten plump bulbs for less than the cost of a well-dressed pizza. Nice.
