Parentage: officinalis x lactiflora. Dark red, loosely formed double of medium size or a little less. Height of plant about 32 inches. Foliage: dark green and resembles lactiflora more than most hybrids, remains green late. Stems: strong, but without the coarseness of many hybrids. Its most notable characteristics are the great number of stems, as many as forty or more on a mature plant, and its floriferous-ness. These features, together with the tendency to hold the foliage in good condition, make it a valuable plant for landscape use. It blooms late for a hybrid, along with the earlier lactifloras. Seedling # R-10.
