Rococo Parrot Tulip

Parrot Tulip

The tulips that we planted last November came roaring into bloom this month: white, orange, cream and tinted with purple. But my favorite were these Rococo Parrot Tulips purchased at a bargain shop in town. They bloomed like an exotic animal, full of brilliant reds.

It’s an early-blooming tulip, showing up in early to mid-April depending on your hardiness zone, and makes an excellent cut flower. You can purchase your own at Bulbs Direct (US) or Sarah Raven (UK + Europe).
