This is a seedling of Vesuvian. It is not a registered name.
A robust plant with large 6″ perfectly shaped red flowers with heavy substance. The plant is long blooming and also one of the latest blooming in my garden. Fat fans produce sturdy, well branched scapes that are about 24″ tall.
Bud set is heavy and they always open without problems even in cold weather.
This show stopper is fire engine red with a chartreuse throat. A winner! Wish I knew who the pollen parent was.
