My Parrot Tulips are in full bloom this week and I absolutely love them.
I am just a little torn - do I create a quilt pattern for this or a needle-felting pattern; maybe I will have to create both and then decide which one to make the pattern out of.....
As stated in Better Homes and Gardens Plant Encyclopedia:
Tulip, parrot hybrids
Parrot tulips are flamboyant with their curly, twisted, and fringed petals that resemble the colorful feathers of the tropical bird of the same name. However, their beak-shape buds are what earned them their moniker. Nearly all varieties of parrot tulip are vibrantly colored, and many are two-toned.
Parrot tulips bloom mid- to late season on stems ranging from 12 to 28 inches tall. Their huge blooms do not stand up well in windstorms or rain, so plant them in a sheltered location.
