In Bloom: ‘White Parrot’ Tulips

When it comes to planning the spring garden, I always find myself struggling to decide which parrot tulips should and should not be planted. Customers and donation recipients seem to be very opinionated about them – either loving them or hating them. Though I love most varieties of parrot tulip, it seems that ‘White Parrot’ tulips served as a good in-between point.

Unlike many of the parrot tulips that I grow, which are heavily feathered, these more closely resemble “regular” flowers. By that, I simply mean that the petals of each flower were much less frayed looking than in some other varieties. While I personally wish that this characteristic would have been more prominent, others found the flowers to be delightful.

I was very pleased with their crisp white color, which undoubtedly would have blended right in with most any wedding decor or formal event. Though I may continue my search for a white parrot tulip that I like better, these were beautiful in their own right. What do you think? Have you ever grown ‘White Parrot’ tulip in your garden.
