When it comes to flamboyant tulips, the Parrot Tulip is by far the most flashy. Among Parrot Tulips, the Caribbean Parrot (Tulipa 'Caribbean Parrot') may just be the brightest and most enthralling. This bright bloom is a tropical dream.
At first glance, this intriguing tulip looks more like a Beta fish than a flower. The Caribbean Parrot Tulip is one of the most fascinating spring bulbs you will find. Its warm and delightful colors are reminiscent of a tropical sunset. And each of its fiery petals has the intricate detail of incisions and enough ruffle that it could dance flamenco if the breeze was right. And to add just a touch more interest, some of the Caribbean Parrot's outer petals are kissed with green accents.
While not the tallest tulip you will find, the Caribbean Parrot sure makes up for its stature with blazing color and unconventional form. At just over a foot tall, the Caribbean Parrot makes the perfect front border. It also steals the show when used as a cut flower. With a mass planting of these brilliant tulips, your neighbors will wonder if they woke up just north of the Equator.
Like most Caribbean creatures, these thrive in full sun. They also like to keep their feet dry with quick-draining soil.
