Parrot Tulips are one of our favourites, they have petals that are feathered, curled, twisted, or waved. Besides this, the flowers are very large and brightly coloured. As a result, Parrot Tulips are extremely flamboyant. If you want dramatic tulips, these are a great choice.
Parrot Tulips were developed from mutations of certain late-flowering tulips, and from tulips in the Triumph Class. As a result, some are late spring flowering, and some are mid-spring flowering. Heights also vary somewhat.
