The tulip parrot is a variety of tulip that was first cultivated in the Netherlands in the early 1600s. It gets its name from its distinctive coloration, which resembles that of a parrot's feathers. Parrot tulips were very popular during the Dutch Golden Age, when they were prized for their exotic beauty. Today, they remain one of the most popular types of tulips and are grown all over the world.
