Though parrot tulips are often revered for their showy, bi-colored blooms, that doesn't mean that those with all-white gardens should give them the cold shoulder. 'White Parrot' offers silky, ivory flowers with just a touch of green.
Lilium speciosum rubrum is an outstanding lily variety that is sought after for its fragrance and late summer bloom. The recurved, pendent flowers are white and crimson, and is among the most fragrant.
Not long ago, I spent a wonderful morning photographing tulips. It was at the beginning of May – so towards the end of tulip season. Among the tulips I photographed were two types of Parrot Tulips – Fantasy and Texas Gold.
Parrot tulips are a large, vibrant variety of tulips with fringed, curled or frilled edges. Plant a few for a unique splash of color or plant them en masse to turn your garden into a tropical paradise.
