Tulip ‘Super Parrot’ is quite a refreshing sight with its oversized, pure white ruffled blooms, pale green flushed, and looking like parrot feathers. As its large flower is exposed to the sun over time, it opens so wide that it almost flattens out, revealing its brilliant colors. Blooming in late spring, this spectacular tulip belongs to the Parrot Tulips group.
Growing up to 16-24 inches tall (40-60 cm), this tulip creates dazzling harmonies with other late-season flowering bulbs.
Performs best in full sun in rich, fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Prefers areas with cool winters and warm dry summers.
Easy to grow, this tulip is a welcomed addition to beds, borders, and containers. For best visual impact, plant in groups (at least 10 to 15 bulbs) or mixed with any other flowering bulbs. Excellent as cut flowers!
Although the stems of Parrot tulips are fairly strong, the great size of their flowers prompts one to plant them in sheltered spots in the garden.
