Flaming Parrot is a creamy yellow Parrot Tulip feathered rosy red. Parrot Tulips are a form named as such due to their fringed, feather like petals and vivid wide array of colours with the first Parrot Tulips being found in 1665 with the first of the modern era, ‘Fantasy’ being a sport of ‘Clara Butt’: A Darwin tulip. This is quite common now with most of the Parrot Tulips being a sport of Darwin Tulips, resulting in a similar flowering time of May. These immense flowers are strikingly beautiful and give a rich ornamental effect in the garden. It also holds an 'RHS Garden of Merit' award. Flaming Parrot grows to 70cm.
