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!
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.
