If you love exotic-looking plants, then this fabulous tulip is bound to ruffle your feathers. Tulip 'Princess Irene Parrot', a colourful parrot version of the much-loved ‘Princess Irene’ tulip, will certainly bring a tropical feel to your planting schemes, but without the need of tropical temperatures! The fascinating flowers bloom in true parrot style, with the vibrant orange plumage you’d expect from a paradise bird. The outer petals are streaked with a contrasting mauve and green flame producing an outright marvellous three-tone effect.

Despite its exotic looks, this faultless parrot tulip variety is completely hardy just like any other tulip, powering through winter and surfacing in spring with the minimum of fuss. This flashy tulip is suitable for patio pots as well as borders. Whether your garden is large or small, wherever you put them they’ll create a warm glow of colour that will grasp you every time your step outside.
