ON SALE! - usually limited to 5 bulbs per person, we've had a bumper crop... the limits have been lifted, and it's time to bag yourselves a bargain.
Tulip Negrita Parrot is a sport of the hugely popular Negrita (a beautiful single Tulip.)
Extra large blooms with beautiful frilled petals and comes in a dark purple colour.
Parrot tulips are cup-shaped, fringed, twisted and ruffled tulips decorated with vivid, flame-like splashes, stripes or feathery markings.
Their blooms are big and impressive... nearly 12.5cm across! . Parrot Tulip flowers deserve a spot in a flower bed or border where their exotic beauty can be fully appreciated. These long-stemmed beauties are stunning in bouquets.
Tulips love colder climates, but also do incredibly well in warmer climates (even as far North as the Cape!) - if you don’t have a cold climate like ourselves, we recommend chilling your Tulip Bulbs for 6 to 8 weeks prior to planting. This will trick them into thinking they are having their Winter period, and prolong their stems and Flowering period.
