Received June 23, 2021. Parentage unknown. First bloomed and propagated 2020. Early/Midseason bloom. Bright red SINGLE flowers, 5 inches in size (13 cm), 1 per stem. Two rows of guard petals, rounded, notched, somewhat creped along the edges, average width 2 1/3 inches (6 cm). Pollen-bearing stamens with orange-red filaments. Carpels generally 4 in number, green, moderately hairy. Stigmas are light red with normal anatomy. Normally no seeds are produced, but a small number can be had when using compatible tetraploid pollen. Light fragrance. Foliage and stems green at maturity but early foliage may emerge with a reddish wash. The leaves are green and broad ovoid. Upright growth habit, height to 28 inches (70 cm) on thick self-supporting stems. The bright and eye-catching flowers are a focal point in the early spring garden, a thing of desire and not easily forgotten. In certain jurisdictions to be marketed with the trade name LONGING.
