HVH: "Another product of our giants hybridizing program, 'The Boss' blooms with enormous 8-10" orange blooms with a bright white eye and white rays. 'Saffron' is its mother, which is easy to see, since 'The Boss' looks like a larger version of its mother. As expected from its parentage, the bush is lush and beautiful. Released from HVH in 2013."
