Parrot tulips get their name because when they’re at the bud stage the bud resembles the beak of a parrot. Their flamboyantly shaped petals are similarly evocative of the plumage from which they get their name.

The red and creamy yellow bloom pictured here is named ‘Flaming Parrot,’ but the blooms come in a variety of colors and the waviness of the petals can vary depending on the hybrid.
