A tremendously unusual Tulip. Its pointed petals are a brownish red that open to display a broad yellow banding around the edge. An unusual sight in the garden and mixes well with bold red varieties. A deserving holder of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit. Being a cross between Single Early Tulips and later flowering varieties Gavota has the advantage of boasting strong weather hardy stems at a height of 40cm and long flowering lives making it excellent for both the garden and cut flower displays. Flowers late April into May.
