Product Information

Parrot tulips are wonderfully flamboyant and some of the showiest tulips available with their incredible flower shapes and stunning colours.

Emerging from lush grey-green foliage, the enormous bowl-shaped flowers of ‘Rococo’ burst open in a show stopping explosion of bright, velvety red flowers with luscious dark maroon markings and vivid lime green highlights. As they age, the flowers open almost flat like plates, showing off their stunning colours. They make a bold statement when planted in large groups in pots and flower borders, these are incredibly impressive tulips and wonderful cut flowers for luxurious indoor arrangements.

Tulips are very easy to grow and care for and can be left in the ground after flowering as long as it’s well drained, so you’ll get another wonderful display the following year as they slowly naturalise and spread, or they can be dug up and stored over winter before replanting the following autumn.

Supplied as 12 bulbs, size 10/11, ready to plant in autumn, growing to a height of 45 cm (18 in) and width of 15 cm (6 in).

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Tulip Bulbs

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back for flowers again next year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

Aftercare Advice

  • Tulips can be planted as late as November, but it’s best to get your bulbs in the ground so that they can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • Water frequently and if in pots ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.

Tidying your Tulips

  • Once flowering is over, it is important to leave the leaves on your tulips until they have died right down, usually by early summer. This allows the bulb to store food and produce flowers the following year.
  • While it is recommended that bulbs are dug up and dried in the summer sun, modern thought is that there is no real benefit from doing this and many gardeners now leave bulbs where they are.
