Princess Irene Parrot Tulip

This parrot tulip has a commanding presence in the garden. The unique colors painting its feathered petals add a note of distinction to a mixed border. You'll have plenty of time to enjoy your success with these incredible blooms, they're very long lasting. They grow on strong, sleek stems, which is nice for cut-flowers. When mature, this variety will reach about 16-20", ideal as a mid-level border plant or container feature. It was originally discovered in a field of Princess Irene Triumph Tulips, and bears the same light fragrance and fiery palette. The real difference between this and the Triumph variety, is in the curled and twisted "parrot"-style petals, which make the hot colors look even brighter. Named for Princess Irene van Lippe-Biesterfeld, the Dutch princess known for her love of nature. Tulipa 'Princess Irene Parrot'

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.

Trees and other oversize items cannot be shipped to PO boxes.

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate. You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate and tracking information.

At any time after you place your order you can check your order status on our website using your email or the account number found in your order confirmation email.
