HVH: "'Hickory Wood' blooms with a 3-5" true mini brown single. The brown can be very, very dark and warm like dark hickory wood with orange rays. At other times, the flower is the brown of a light-colored wood with white rays. The parents of 'Hickory Wood' are 'Moon Shadow' and 'Magic Carpet Ride.' Released from HVH in 2011."
