Seedling number 2-54-1. Parentage not given. First bloomed 2013, first propagated 2015. Early blooming SEMI-DOUBLE flowers are red, with petal edges bleeding to a lighter pink shade. Occasional light pink striations traverse the length of petals. Flowers are 15cm (6”) in diameter, upward facing, and average one per stem. Guard petals are frilled and ruffled. Flowers possess on average four very hairy, green carpels with pink stigmas of normal anatomy. Stamens are more than 2cm (0.75”) in length. Fertile both ways. Plants reach 80cm (31.5”) at maturity, and carry broad-blunt, to 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.
