This was a bonus from Keith, and I admit I hadn't really taken much notice of this hybrid before I received it. That said, the blooms on this cultivar are very sturdy and have a sheen that make them appear almost as if they were artificial. I'm guessing this hybrid isn't as appreciated as it should be considering the low number of folks who grow it in their garden. I want to state emphatically that this should be considered by everyone because of its fabulous blooms and magnificent beards (can't forget to mention the beards!).
