(D-22) 1-26 x J34 (Shin-techni). Still the most unusual of the hybrids. Each petal is suffused with deep red on the inner side, with strokes of yellow running from the base to the rim; on the outer, or reverse, side of the petal are streaks of red across a deep yellow. The center is dark red, while the anthers are yellow. The vivid, exotic colors suggest the paintings of Paul Gauguin.
