Mystery tulip

After 5+ years of tulips, this is the first time one like this appeared without purposely planting it.  Soft creamy yellow with red outlined edge. This is in the ground and is not a cut flower. Does anyone know the name of this tulip or how it might have come about?  A natural cross?

If it is this variety then it is a late spring bloomer and quite tall.
as for where it came from, maybe you got a miss-labeled bulb or it was a substitute, cos it was close to what you wanted (suppliers do this alot to reduce stock levels and reason most customers wouldn't know :) )
