Tulipa 'Black Parrot' bears dramatic, blackish-purple, cup-shaped flowers with irregularly cut wavy petals on sturdy stems, in contrast with strap-like, grey-green leaves. It looks spectacular when planted with white-flowered tulips in the ornamental border, and makes a striking cut flower.
Grow Tulipa 'Black Parrot' in well-drained soil in full sun. To encourage flowering the following year, deadhead spent blooms to prevent the bulb using its energy on producing seed, and feed with a high-potash fertiliser. Allow foliage to fully die down after flowering. Alternatively, treat as an annual.
