Tulip ‘Apricot Parrot’ produces enormous, striking peach blooms to add colourful flamboyance to the late spring garden.
Apricot-pink petals unfurl and gently curl with rippling, feathered edges and green and ivory streaks.
These attention-demanding tulips have been granted an Award of Garden Merit by the RHS and are excellent for cutting and adding a touch of glamour to floral displays.
Plant en masse in garden beds, borders and pots for a spectacular show in May.
A distinguished tulip for the late spring garden, ‘Black Parrot’ dramatically flaunts feathered, undulating petals of velvety rich-maroon as it unfolds.
Tall stems make this RHS award-winning tulip perfect for cutting. The handsome blooms are long-lasting both in the garden and in the vase, twisting, curling and lightening to a swirling palette of plum shades as it opens and develops.
The dark, beautifully laciniated flowers look even more striking planted next to more simple-shaped tulips, either in similar tones or contrasting colours. We love it brushing up against the fragrant orange, lily-flowering tulip ‘Ballerina’.
Large elegant creamy-white flowers edged with rose-pink and green markings.
Tulip ‘Estella Rijnveld’ is a fun and flamboyant tulip, bringing colour, movement and plenty of panache to the garden in May.
Feathered petals are dramatically splashed in flamingo-red and white with occasional streaks of green. Planted en masse to fill a garden bed or large pot, these tulips are true show-stoppers.
The huge flowers are also great for cutting and adding a striking feature to floral arrangements. Display a single stem in a bud vase to admire this extravagant beauty up close.
Soft and feathery, the blooms of tulip ’Green Wave’ exude elegance and grace flowering in the late spring garden.
In a refreshing palette of blush and lavender pink, spring green and ivory shades, the delicate ruffled flowers have the versatility to mingle with other spring blooms in garden borders and containers without being overly imposing and look exquisite when mass planted in swathes and blocks.
With a vase life of at least two weeks, tulip ‘Green Wave’ is an exceptional cut flower, adding feathered texture and a luxurious edge to floral designs.
Opulent and exotic, tulip ‘Negrita Parrot’ is the cousin to popular purple tulip ‘Negrita’ and makes a spectacular bold addition to the late spring garden.
The impressively large blooms are comprised of twisting, feathered petals in royal-purple with flashes of blackberry and the odd splash of contrasting green. Long, strong stems mean this flamboyant beauty is perfect as a cut flower, lasting for well over a week in the vase.
Excellent for pots and nestling into herbaceous borders, the rich hues are intensified by zingy orange shades and fresh lime greens.
Silky-red flowers with darker markings on the outside of petals.
Elegant pure white flowers feathers with green streaks.
