Parrot tulips of all feathers are celebrated for their fringed and splashy plumage, but our Blushing Parrot truly elevates the tropical look of the parrot group. This luxurious variety changes color as the tulip matures. Huge, feathered flowers, nearly six inches across, open in yellow with a flush of red, then lighten to white with a magenta blush. Late in their bloom season, they shift, once again, to a delightful mix of yellow and apricot. Blushing Parrot blooms on long, thick stems that make them sturdy growers and gorgeous cut flowers. Plant a group of these parrot tulips in a container or border for an ever-changing display from mid through late spring. Tulipa 'Blushing Parrot'
