flower color is variable, a vibrant currant red, RHS 44a–46a. The description from the 1977 Wisely Trials stated the flower color as RHS 43A with lower half silvery white flushed with a red purple RHS 74D (pink). The pink flush probably indicated temperature sensitivity. Tube is white. McM&H. stated it was early flowering. Flower length is 5.7 cm., diameter is 5 cm.
