I'll always have a special place in my heart for Apricot Parrot tulips. These happened to be the very first tulips I planted at our property when we moved in! The fall we moved in, and before I even planned to start a flower farm, I was busy planting bulbs so there would be colour when the snow melted after our first winter at the farmhouse. I had always loved parrot tulips, and now that we had found our forever home, I didn't mind splurging a bit on bulbs. I was absolutely thrilled when they bloomed the following spring. They were even better than I had pictured! Even better, nobody I had over had ever seen a parrot tulip before, let alone the apricot colour! They were a hit, and solidified my plan to plant as many tulips as possible for the spring of '22. Apricot Parrot will always have a home here at 81 Petals. Whether it be in my flower beds, or in the flower patch as a cut flower. They are loved either way!
