A beautiful Parrot Tulip with gorgeous yellow flowers. The blooms are large and curled at the edges, and the occasional splash of green adds another dimension to this beauty. Tulip 'Yellow Sun' flowers mid to late season and is an asset in gardens, pots and vases.

True extroverts, Parrot Tulips are colourful, frilled and flamboyant and can create quite a stir in the garden. Their ravishing bicoloured, frilled petals are nothing short of decadent. Yet they remain reliable, tough and hardy.

Tulips may have a reputation as `difficult customers` but in most cases this is undeserved. When you buy a bulb the flower is already pre-formed, ready to bloom. All you need to do is plant them into well drained soil in a sunny spot, fertilise and water, then wait for the show!

A simple way to remember when to plant your tulips is Mother`s Day! It is ideal because by this time of year the soil has cooled sufficiently for planting. It doesn’t have to be on the day but as long as you are around the date.

All our bulbs are ready to grow; they do not need to be chilled, which is one less thing to do.

It is a good idea to prepare the soil for their arrival by adding some delicious organic matter. Tulips need good drainage and at least six hours sun a day to flower at their best. Plant the bulbs 15-20cm deep with the pointed end up. Space your tulips 10-20cm apart, planting closer for a more spectacular show.

In most areas it is recommended you lift and store your Tulip bulbs once their foliage has browned. You don’t need to do this if you live in an area with frost, the soil is shaded or mulched through summer and the ground does not become soggy during their dormant period. In every other case it is recommended.
