Parrot tulips are gorgeous…but which variety?

Yesterday I bought this stunning bouquet of parrot tulips. The flowers start out as tightly closed green buds, but as the buds open something magical happens. The tips of the petals start to transform themselves from green to clear bright yellow and then to brilliant scarlet.

But here’s the thing… does anyone know what this variety is called? I’d love to plant some in the garden for next spring, so if you think you know what their name is, please tell me.
