Gudoshnik is growing well here in my zone 2b garden in Manitoba, Canada. I love the variations in color with the yellow striking through the red.

This tulip is quite variable in color. Red is the most frequent color but many blooms are streaked with light yellow shades (refer to the composite picture I uploaded). The color varies from year to year too. Last year they were almost entirely red but this spring I have a lot more yellow in the mix.

This tulip is quite an old hybrid, developed in 1952. I have lost count of how long I've had it...easily 20 years plus. I have not seen this cultivar for sale much in recent years, probably superceded by more fancy cultivars. The subtle red feathering over yellow makes this old cultivar still desirable.
