Will someone with access to the tulip registry please tell me if Tulipa 'Nizza' and Tulipa 'Golden Nizza' are distinct cultivars? 
I've just purchased a sack of the double late tulip  'Golden Nizza' and the card shows a flower with bright yellow and red flames. 
Decades ago I grew 'Nizza' which is a double late tulip with very pale yellow and bright red flames. 
I'm assuming that 'Golden Nizza' is a sport of the original 'Nizza' but I would like to know that the registry says. 
For those of you who don't know, Nizza is Italian for the (now) French city Nice.
