Tulip 'Black Hero' and 'Black Parrot'

Last year a further 750 tulips were planted in the herbaceous border, see blog entry 14th November 'A New Colour Scheme Of Tulips', adding to those that had been planted annually since 2009. Today 500 tulips were planted, a mix of 'Black Hero', a double flowered maroon-black tulip and 'Black Parrot', a dark maroon-black tulip with frilled margins and, as with last year, the bulbs were mixed in trugs before being thrown randomly over the border for a more natural, rather than regimented, look next spring.
