Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said:BLACK FALCON RITUAL
05 EM 38 SE
JERRY HYATT X [PARADISE LOST x (SMOKE AND MIRRORS x (OMEGA SUPREME x TUXEDO MOON))]
Swift and silent, like a dark apparition in the night, BLACK FALCON RITUAL further advances the TET TRAHYLYTA experience. Exotic and boldly triangular, these 7" stream-lined birds of prey strongly flair, pinch, and reflex as though in flight. The color is a deep and portentous black-purple with a bright chartreuse throat radiating out onto both petal and sepal. A contrasting light flare accents the midrib and bisects the exaggerated scarlet watermark. The erect 38" scapes hold these dramatic blooms well above the foliage on three-way branching. Very fertile both ways.
