    Brilliant, luminous mandarin red with a coral orange watermark. Impossible to ignore and ideal for a focal or highlight plant, or perhaps for a pot - simply screams for attention. Each perfect bloom opens flat and the scapes are well branched.

    Somewhat rusty during the great infestation of 2021
