More Information

Tulip White Rebel – A pure white and highly figured parrot tulip; White Rebel is not quite as tall as Black Parrot or Flaming Parrot but will have a larger head.

Parrot tulips are defined by their curling fringes and distorted petals. They flower later in the season into May and look very interesting as they begin to emerge from the green buds in late April.

When do I plant Tulip bulbs?

Tulip bulbs will be shipped to you from the middle of September once we have received the bulbs. The optimum time to plant tulips is in Autumn, when the soil has cooled down from October to December, but you can plant as late as January. To get the best results, plant them in moist soil during autumn, this will activate the growth of the roots before winter. Tulip bulbs need a spell of 6 weeks of cold weather to activate them into flowering in spring.

How do I plant Tulip bulbs?

Tulip bulbs need a spell of 6 weeks of cold weather to activate them into flowering in spring. The optimum time to plant tulips is in Autumn, when the soil has cooled down from October to December, but you can plant as late as January. To get the best results, plant them in moist soil during autumn, this will activate the growth of the roots before winter. Tulip bulbs start with a good source of moisture and nutrients stored within the bulb, so you don’t need to feed, soak, or prepare them in any way.

Parrot Tulips are quite top heavy, so should be sheltered from the wind to avoid damage.

Parrot Tulips look great in borders or as features in pots. Plant them 10-15cm deep in well-draining soil, around 10cm apart to stop the roots competing and the foliage getting cramped. Tulip bulbs produce a lot of roots that don’t like to sit in water, but once they start growing make sure they don’t dry out. If planting in pots, make sure they have good drainage and lots of room for the roots to develop. Pots can dry out quite quickly so a loam soil is often best.

Tulip bulbs can be kept in the ground all year round, but you may find that they don’t put on as much of a display as the previous year. You can read more about why and how you should lift tulip bulbs.
