A seedling of Red Charm. By stressing the plant, a few seeds were produced. Parentage . . . pollen used from Sunny Boy. The flower has two rows, nicely cupped pastel flesh pink single, with very strong stiff stems. The plant is valuable for hybridizing as it carries 50% genes of Red Charm. To my knowledge Red Charm does not have pollen. For years I have tried to achieve the results of today, with this plant Red Charm.
