With an island-inspired color and a form unlike any other tulip, this Parrot type boasts ruffled petals of deep violet accented by green midribs. When planted in small groups, Rai resembles a flock of beautiful tropical birds alight in the landscape. They make a sensational focal point in the mid- to late-spring garden. Fantastic in cut-flower arrangements, too. Their straight, sturdy stems grow to 20-22' tall in full sun to partial shade. Zones 3-8. 11-12 CM. Tulipa 'Rai',

A subspecies that emerged from the 'Tulipomania' phenomenon that held Holland in thrall in the 17th century, many varieties of Parrot tulip were cultivated for showcasing in gardens both grand and small. Like their traditional counterparts, many Parrots feature the broken color patterns that were so highly prized during that period. What separates them from standard tulips is their unusual form and more vibrant colorations. Their popularity has grown over the centuries, making these unique tulips greatly sought after, even in today's market.

Among the largest and most spectacular spring flowering bulbs, Parrot tulips produce large blooms of frilled and ruffled petals in an array of brilliant colors not often found in traditional tulips. They appear on tall, straight stems that keep flowers upright and highly visible in the garden. Plant these Dutch flower bulbs in groups for a dazzling presentation of bright color and unique beauty. Decorators love parrot tulip bulbs, too! They make an eye-catching addition to bouquets and indoor arrangements.
