This is exquisitely beautiful. The exotic and sultry 'Black Parrot', mixed with the chestnut maroon ‘Ridgedale’. The purple and black ‘Caviar’ and ‘Queen of Night’ are there to ground the other two world-class beauties, which would be too much on their own. Swoon!

This collection contains 5 or 10 bulbs each of:
  • Tulip 'Ridgedale'
  • Tulip 'Negrita Parrot'
  • Tulip 'Purple Raven'
  • Tulip 'Queen of Night'

Our bulb collections will be supplied with each variety bagged individually. To reduce waste, we no longer collate these into a second larger bag. Your delivery paperwork will list details of the collection you have ordered and the varieties included. Our bags can either be recycled or composted (please check bags for details).

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

Tulip petals are all edible. We scatter them over salad and use some petals dipped in tempura batter and served with a spring garden Frito Misto. Tulip 'White Valley' is a favourite for this.

Care Tips

After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.
