E.B. Hoare Notes A6-6-1; McM&H 1995: 104a poor grower. Nice large flower, but definitely not burnt orange in color, more a smoked salmon (E.B. Hoare). Note: variations in this cultivar have occurred. The 'Burnt Orange' sold by Betty Winton was orange red with spatulate upper petals and pointed tips. Lower petals linear obovate with obtuse tips. Tube length was 4 cm., pale silvery magenta pink. Flower length was 8.5 cm. Upper width was 2.5 cm. and lower width was 3.5 cm. Ovary receptacle was 1.2 cm., elongated, upturned, angled, deep matte green. Also described as a poor grower. The version sold by Des Ellery of Buena Vista was described as orange red with round, spatulate upper petals with pointed tips. Lower petals were lanceolate with acute tips. Tube length was 3.5 cm., pale silvery magenta pink. Flower length was 7.5 cm. Upper width was 3 cm. and lower width was 5 cm. Ovary receptacle 1.3 cm, elongated, very upturned, faintly angled, thin at base, opaque apple green. Purported to be a poor grower like the other two.
