Beautifully Deep Red Single Tulips are available at prices which can allow you to splurge a bit!

As always, Single Tulips are produced in a lot of colors, we kept it focused by whittling down to only Red Varieties. Available in mixes as well as solid variety boxes from Holland, and there are also plenty of mixes available from Canada and France too.

Tulip Parrot Red Roccoco
the French Romance of the Rococo Parrot Tulip
“Rococo” means late Baroque style, a style in interior design starting in 1730 and dating until the late 18th century. Marked by asymmetry, scrolling curves, gilding, sculpted, sumptuous moldings and artwork to create the illusion of surprise, motion and drama.... we can think of no better name to represent what we feel is the pinnacle of Parrot Tulips, Tulip Red Rococo. An absolute pitch perfect flower for date night, it’s deep blood red color, accented by all manner of richness and dramatic evocations is a perfect pairing for a romantic evening with the object of your affections. Tie a bunch with a black velvet ribbon or a lace and you are set. Add a good bottle of wine, some chocolates and your favorite little luxuries if you really want to spoil yourself. We say go for it, you deserve it. “When in Rome” as they say....
