36″ Ht. 5″ bloom – zone 3

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. Fan size tends to be small in Wisconsin, but even here, this one looks like it came from a southern garden. The plant is long blooming and also one of the latest blooming in my garden.

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 papa was.
