This exuberant variety boasts large flared heads with intricately feathered edges. Petals twist and turn artistically, each one a sizzling orange with traces of glowing yellow margins, which give Irene Parrot a look of being set alight. The main body of the outer petal blushes purple-green towards the base and blends into each grey-green stem seamlessly. Each flower head sits on a sturdy stem, surrounded by lance-shaped foliage. Irene Parrot not only looks good in pots or the border, but is perfect for cut flower displays. How about mixing with similarly coloured, more simple looking tulips to complement? 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 50cm.

Well drained garden soil

Pruning

Plant 8-10cm deep and approx 15cm apart.

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.
