Parrot Feathers

This is a tulip and I think the assortment is Texas Flame. I worship the pretentiousness of these blossoms. I don't generally like my blooms showy particularly in my own particular arrangement, yet I have a genuine weakness for these extreme tulips. I see totally why there was tulip lunacy in the seventeenth century, and immense entireties of cash were paid for tulip globules. Who would have the capacity to oppose, in the event that you fit in with the gentry?

These "flared" tulips, are at times called Rembrandt tulips after the Dutch craftsman and in spite of the fact that he didn't paint them, other seventeenth century Dutch specialists did.

The bi-colouration was at first the consequence of the plants being tainted by tulip mosaic infection which brought on the robust colors to "break", yet now they are more prone to come about because of the trials plant rearing . Notwithstanding they are brought on, I generally think they look like parrots' plumes.
