This vibrant variety bears beautifully large flared heads with intricately feathered edges. Petals twist and turn this way and that, each one a buttery yellow with vivid jammy red splashes. The cup-shaped flower heads open out as the plant matures, providing an ongoing and varied display. They are held up by sturdy stems, surrounded by lance-shaped foliage. Flaming Parrot not only looks good in pots or the border, but is perfect for unique cut flower displays. How about mixing with other outrageous looking tulips, for a display that celebrates the whimsically wonderful? Don't forget that tulips like to be planted late in October and November with the colder weather (it helps wipe out disease, too.) Plant bulbs pointy side up, 15cm deep and water well. 11/12cm bulbs supplied. Flowers April to May. Height 55cm.

Planting

Plant at approx 10cm deep.

Soil Type

Well drained garden soil

Plant bulbs in well dug soil about 8-10cm deep and approx 15cm apart. It is often beneficial to use a little bonemeal or super phosphate mixed in with the soil. Tulips delight during their growth in a sunny location.
After the tulips have bloomed and when leaves fade and turn brown the bulbs can be lifted, dried, cleaned and stored in a cool place until planting time. Tulips should not be grown in the same soil for several years, so replace with fresh soil every other year.
