The finest dip I grow...and I grow a lot of em. Tall, striking color, tons of blooms, and even rebloom! It has very strong pollen, and was able to set pods on rebloom. The first time I saw the picture I knew I had to have it, and it is even prettier in person.

Should see a ton of kids in the next few years!
