Shining Parrot is a delightful new tulip with a striking silky sheen available from Poplar Nurseries.
Flowering in May at a height of 50cm (20") this sumptuous tulip will create stunning spring displays in either the garden border or planted into patio pots.
Tulips like sunshine, but the flowers will last longer in partial shade. They can be planted in a wide range of soils provided there is good drainage.
Remove flower heads as they begin to fade and lift when the leaves fade. Clean and store the bulbs until the autumn when they can be replanted.
Protect newly planted bulbs from squirrels.
