With their large flowers with a frilly, feathery appearance and exotic markings, Parrot Tulips always create a sensational display in the spring garden. Here, the glowing tangerine blossoms of these tulips are underplanted with the deep blue daisy-like flowers of Anemone blanda ‘Blue Shades’ for eye-catching splashes of color in late spring. Any of the suggested Parrot Tulips below would work to replicate this lovely look.

A planting idea ideal for beds and borders, edging, or containers. Enjoy!
