Seedling number 7-10-2-1. Parentage not given. First bloomed 2010, first propagated 2012. Early blooming SINGLE flowers are red, opening star-shaped, fading with blurred white flare-like patterns on the exterior of guard petals. Flowers are 17cm (6.7”) in diameter, upward facing, and average one per stem. Guard petals are frilled and pointed. Flowers possess on average three very hairy, green carpels with pink stigmas of normal anatomy. Stamens are between 1.25-2cm (0.5-0.75”) in length, and abundantly fill the center of the flower. Fertile both ways. Plants reach 76cm (30”) at maturity, and carry broadly pointed, green foliage with undertones of purple. Foliage at time of emergence is red. Growth habit is upright; mechanical support is unnecessary. Presents good potential for cut-flower production. Named for one of the Roman legions, the “Twin Legion”.
