I know there's now way to positively ID a plant but I'm curious if anybody thinks this could be "Apple Tart"? I received this a few years ago instead of what I ordered. I asked the the people I got it from what it is but but they had no clue. It's not the best photo because I find this an incredibly difficult flower to photograph and get a reasonable likeness of colour! It's a brilliant redish orange with a purplish red overtone. It's dormant and I don't know if it's a dip or tet as I've not been able to set seed on it or with its pollen. I'd appreciate any input!

In my garden the scapes are 34" +or- depending on the weather and the flowers are 5.5 - 6". I haven't counted the buds. I almost never get rebloom on anything so I can't say if this does or not.

Edited to add scape height and bloom size.

My only guess would be Crimson Pirate.

Thanks for your response but I know that's not it. I have Crimson Pirate and they are quite different in colour and size.

Well, just looking at the photos in the database, I think it could be Apple Tart. I just planted it so it will be a long while before I have an actual plant to compare. Do the bloom size and other stats match up?

You're probably going to get questions about stats, so posting those would be helpful. Bloom size and height would probably make it easier. I hope someone can put a name on that pretty face!

When I read that you had trouble getting an accurate picture, I figured it had to be Crimson Pirate! I've taken way too many pictures of mine, and still can't get an accurate one! Your picture looked so much like many pictures of my Crimson Pirate, so I thought it was going to be easy! Hilarious!
