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.

These are very lovely indeed! I am finding my red/yellow simple single tulips have gone so well with daffodils and other solid tulips. My double tulips seem to be on shorter stems, so I’m leaning towards planting more of the single variety. I love their elegant lines anyway. Thanks for sharing!
I love red flowers, but usually go for pinks and purples instead. Very pretty tulips — I love that there was a bit of variety in the blooms.
