Parrot Tulips!



I'm just thrilled! Sorry guys, this one’s not wordless (WW-tuesday edition). Yesterday, I spent a long time in my garden. I have noticed this three-toned very showy slashed, irregularly fringed petals of my tulips. So, I called my sister inlaw to know what kind of tulips is this and I told her that, kind of untamed geese, feathery petals, look as if they were flicked by an artist .... lol! She told me that, it's a Parrot Tulips and they stood up well to wind and rain.

  6. Those are incredible!!! I wonder if something like that is available here in Canada? (Actually, a more appropriate question might be, "is it a low-maintenance perennial?" I totally suck with plants!!)
