Grape cranberry with lots of veining; velvety cranberry plus merlot plus cranberry feathered eye; merlot plus dark lavender plus silver edge; green throat. Magnificent, clear, saturated, unspotted blooms. Nicely spaced laterals with well-spaced flowers; scapes sometimes curve. Gorgeous in heat; poor sepals in cold weather. Large, heavy flowers and LOTS per scape, so in one year during its testing period the scapes leaned 45 degrees (i.e 1:30 on a clock) but fine other years.
Fertile both ways, but haven’t seen many kids yet since always an “outside” flower.
