I’ve got parrots in the garden … not real parrots because we don’t live in the right climate … but parrot tulips. Parrot tulips are known for their colourful, curly, fringed petals that perhaps resemble parrot feathers. They have gorgeous colour combinations. These are the tulips that I grew in pots this year and I have been really pleased with the results.
The buds are like parrot beaks and that is where their name comes from.
Do you have any parrot tulips in your garden?
