These start out bright yellow with a small red lining, then gradually the red spreads. Very pretty.

This is the second year I've grown this tulip. As with most Darwins, last year's planting came back nicely, and the ones I added this year are doing well. It's large and bright golden, edged and marked with scarlet. It is striking with other Darwins such as Holland's Glory, Silverstream, American Dream, Gudoshnik.
