With a very special flower shape, the flowers in bud resemble the beak of a parrot hence the name parrot tulips. Petals curl in all directions and this gives a special effect. The bright red and yellow combination creates a great impact, especially planted in large groups. Tulips are one of the most popular bulbs, as they are great planted with many different colour variations to give a fresh, vibrant spring colour to your garden, patio or decking. They also make great cut flowers to brighten up the house. Plant in autumn for stunning spring displays.
