|brilliant orange red. Short flower tube is white. Lower basal tepals are broad, elliptic and recurved. Upper petals are lanceolate, almost spear-like with upper marginal edges curling inward, creating an acute, narrow tip. Some apical petals fall between petal and style form. These are magenta red and orange red. Rudimentary orange-red petal-like structures are found near the tips of these altered petals. Style is a dull magenta red with a magenta-pink stigma. The latter turns magenta red as the flower matures. Stigma extends beyond the light yellow anthers. Filaments are white. Pod appears to have some slight ridging.
|medium green phylloclades exhibit 2 - 3, usually 3 forward facing sharply pointed dentations per marginal side. Growth habit is open and cascading. Named in memory of the Old's son-in-law.
