A vigorous, well-branched, and well-budded cultivar with a rich, unusual color combo. Last year, it performed less well because of the unusual spring weather (late freeze) and dry conditions. My only reservation is that the flowers don't hold really well in afternoon sun. Pictures are from 2014 and 2015.

I grew this quite a long time (I don't have the space to keep anything for very long and still buy new things). It's a very unusual color and the bud count was ridiculously high. Nice plant that increases quickly, too.
