flower is dark orange suffused to fuchsia and scarlet red. Similar to ‘Gaertneri Giant’ but a little smaller. Stem segments are edged burgundy and are same sized to a little smaller than R. gaertneri. In a Johan de Vries advertisement, a photo of the cultivar appeared similar to ‘Evita’ with the exception of the flowers being slightly darker pink and the tepals being narrower. The blooms appeared more star-shaped.
