One of the most exciting aspects of blogging about plants is being able to try those which I might not otherwise choose. ‘Gudoshnik Double’ tulips are definitely one of those plants. Whenever I plan the garden, I nearly always find that I unintentionally avoid flowers in shades of yellow and red. Hesitantly, I ordered ten of these bright bulbs last fall and planted them. The result – beautiful flowers!
‘Gudoshnik Double’ tulips are a late season variety of tulip. Like many of these peony-flowered types, the blooms are absolutely enormous. This tulip is also very unique, it distinct red and yellow stripes. In my own very small sampling of bulbs, I found that about half of the flowers were striped and half were solid. Still, I really enjoyed the surprise as the petals unfurled.
