parentage F2 A x F2 B. First year bloomed 1965. Light purple to red hybrid, single. The mystery and the presence of this flower is unique of which one could write a beautiful poem. I am sure that Sappho could. Good substance, stamens, pollen, no seeds, fragrant. Reliable, one bud per stem and the amount of bloom varies (10-20). Good stem strength, grows 3-5 feet and blooms late May. Good vigor, light green foliage. (Poetess) Colored slide. eedling # D-218
