Product Information

P>Although parrot tulips are often incredibly flamboyant and colourful, completely stealing the show in the spring garden, there are varieties that are altogether more elegant and peaceful. ‘White Parrot’ is just that.

With it extremely large flowers standing above grey-green foliage, it is a perfect exercise in restraint. They flowers are no less beautiful that any other parrot tulip, but in clean ivory white, with just a small splash of green, the feathery petals take on an understated grace that is incredibly attractive. As they age, the flowers open almost flat like white porcelain plates. They look incredible when planted in large groups in pots and flower borders, and are wonderful cut for indoor arrangements, especially added to other white and cream blooms.

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. Choose a sheltered spot as 'White Parrot' can be sentitive to cold, wet conditions.

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.
