Just like T. 'Yellow Calgary' and 'Calgary Flames' it has the same father (T. 'Snowstar') and mother (T. 'Thule'). T. 'Calgary' is, just like her sisters, under PBR.

Here in zone 4a, not all mine bloomed. They are cute and short, but did not hold up to rain or wind in spring. Mine were not fragrant at all sticking my nose to them. I'll probably dig them up and give them away. Maybe better in a better protected area. (possibly a warmer zone too.)

A beautiful 'standard' tulip, only shorter! Bloomed for 3 weeks before a hard rain stripped the petals.

Although it's a lovely little tulip, I planted eight and only two came up. Our winter wasn't particularly cold and there was lots of snowcover, so I'm at a loss.
