Tulip Apricot Parrot is just as the name suggests – an apricot coloured tulip of the parrot kind. Apricot Parrot grows up to 50 cm tall and is the perfect tulip to put in a vase!

The flowers bloom in the middle of the season or slightly later. The tulip Apricot Parrot usually shows its extraordinary flowers in April-May.

Other information

  • First loosen the soil well where the flower bulbs will be planted. Then the soil is easier to work with.
  • Dig a hole and make sure it is 2 to 3 times as deep as the height of the tulip bulbs.
  • For the distance between the bulbs, make sure it is 2 times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • Plant the flower bulbs in the hole with the pointed side facing up or with the root base facing down.
  • Cover the tulip bulbs with soil and water them well.

Pre-orders can be placed until the first week of August, which will be shipped in the first half of September and delivered in October.
