Description

Let this fancy flock of parrots flutter their feathers in your garden next spring! Tulip collection 'Pastel Parrots' adds some fizz to your planting scheme with magestic ruffled blooms in sherbety shades of yellow, orange and pink. Every petal is an absolute masterpiece, with unique wavy edges and alluring two-tone colouring. Not only will they light up your garden with their exotic glow, but they’ll never fail to reel you in for a closer look. If you’ve got a taste for tropical tones and jaw-droppingly fabulous flowers, you’ll not be let down by this colourful tulip collection!

Despite their tropical looks, these 'Pastel Parrots' are just as hardy and low maintenance as any other tulip. Parrot tulips are fascinating from the moment they form their flower buds right up until the petals start to fall. They take their time to fully unfurl and look great throughout the entire process, treating you to weeks of interest. Amazing in the garden and also as a cut flower, just a few of these impressive blooms make a huge impact in an arrangement.

Tulip collection 'Pastel Parrots' combines the top of the pastel-shaded parrot tulips. With equal plant heights and simultaneous flowering, it’s a ready-made mix of harmonious pastel colours that will perk up your pots and beautify your borders, requiring the minimum of effort and planning. All you have to do is plant the bulbs in autumn and wait for a display to be proud of the following spring. They have strong, generous stems and last well in a vase too. Make sure you plant plenty because it’s hard to resist picking a bunch of these beauties!

We always use the best quality bulbs for this collection which means that the varieties we choose to create this look may differ from year to year. The varieties used in this collection may not be the same as the varieties pictured, and there will be a slight variation in colours.
