Heavily frilled and scalloped, the feathery-edged blooms of the Apricot parrot Tulip are like no other! The petals contain many colors, including cream, orange, apricot, rose and green with even a little yellow on the edges. This one also blooms with a slight sweet fragrance! These tulip are wonderful for cutting and put on quite the show in the landscape! Can be sensitive to cold wet weather, but excellent cut flowers. Represents perfect love & eternal happiness!

  • Tulips perform best in full sun to partial shade
  • Plant tulips when temperatures have cooled in your area in fall. Once your daytime temperatures are in the 60’s or lower consistently, this is a good time to plant your tulips.
  • Tulips require 12-16 weeks of consistent temperatures below 50 degrees in winter in order to produce a flower bud; tulips are best suited to cold climates.
  • Adequate drainage is essential to the health of your tulips. Amend your soil with top soil and organic matter such as compost, manure, leaf mold or peat moss prior to planting. After you have amended your soil, it should be light and easy to work with.
  • Fertilize at planting with Hi Yield Bulb Food or for organic gardening use Bulb-Tone. Apply fertilizer at least 3” below the bottom of the bulbs so that the roots will get the most benefit from the fertilizer.
  • Tulips should be planted at least 6-8” deep with the pointed side of the tulip facing towards the sky. Dig the planting hole 12” deep so you can add fertilizer to the bottom of the hole. After adding fertilizer back fill with 3-4” of soil, plant your bulbs, then back fill with remaining soil.
  • Space tulips 4-6” apart when planting individual bulbs. For mass planting and brilliant bursts of color in the garden, plant the bulbs 2-3” apart in bouquet planting groups, trenches and garden beds.
  • Immediately after planting, water the tulip planting area. This helps to eliminate air pockets in the soil. After the initial planting, it is not necessary to provide any supplemental water to the area. In spring once the tulips have emerged you may water as necessary, although spring rains often make providing additional water unnecessary.
  • Apply a layer a 2” layer of mulch in late fall.

  • colorful
  • hardy
  • breathtaking
Cons:
  • None.
I have never been a frilly tulip person but I ordered these because I thought my kids would love "parrot" tulips and I liked the colors. Beyond breathtaking!

We pre-dipped all our bulbs in a bucket of repels all and let them air dry before planting. We had none dug up. And every single one bloomed.

I wish I could post photos here but I have tagged @hollandbulbfarms on Instagram
