Darwin tulip that's been around since 1952. Coloration so varied looks like a purposed mix. Good, strong garden presence. Can be forced.

'Gudoshnik' looks like a mix of tulips in bloom. Containing red and yellow solid blooms, splashes, striped and variegated blooms ranging from rose reds to yellows and peaches, they are all 'Gudoshnik'.

If you want a multicolored display but want your tulips to all bloom at the same time, then 'Gudoshnik' is for you.

I just had to have Gudoshnik, which I got last fall. 175 are planted in the flowerbed in my back yard. They're the tulip blooming closest to my kitchen window, so I will be able to see these beauties all the time. They appear to be a variable tulip. Everything is "mixed" in regard to color and design. This is my first time growing this gorgeous tulip and I'm very excited to see all the blooms in spring!

I know I'll be taking a lot of pics and studying all the tulips to see how they look. It will be a wonderful mixture of "one" tulip variety!
