I would appreciate hearing an opinion on this new seedling, first set of blooms after nubbing the first year.
(three inflos on five branches).
Parentage is unknown.

Provisionally named 'Red Hot Tango.

Hetty it is a very pretty Red, but what makes it stand out above other reds? Does it have a thicker texture, better keeping quality, great scent, unbelievable flower set? In my opinion a new variety needs to be something new, different, or have an advantage over what is already named and being sold. What would be an advantage of owning this over something say like Pops Red or Thai Red? Just thinking aloud

That was the kind of feedback I was looking for. Maybe we can develop a rating, so on a scale of one to ten of 'desirability', this would be a what - a 6?
I personally like it, but I will address the several points you make.

A good picture of what it looks like today. One thing going for it: a profusion of blooms. This is one of three inflos currently blooming! And excellent keeping quality.
I think it just went to a 7 Smiling for me anyway

I would give it a 6 or 7 out of ten. I like the fact that it is producing so well. What is its growth habit like? How many branches does it produce with each new inflo.

Very nicely balanced plant at this stage, not overly lanky, pretty medium in growth habit I would say. The inflos are making 2, 3 and 3 branches from what I can tell. Still embryonic.
Good upright inflo which stands out above the leaves.

When it goes dormant later this year I will move it to a better spot. It's a little close to the house right now.

The first bloom opened on this inflo on September 9th. Yesterday (Sept. 17th) the first bloom dropped off. I call that very good keeping quality - eight days.

Here is a picture of the second inflo which has started opening. There is one more Smiling Thumb of 2010-09-18/Dutchlady1/0a6b77

I would agree definatley good holding quality, and sounds like it will be a multi brancher. What is the scent and how intense?

Looks to me like it just keeps getting purtier and purtier.

Very nice Hetty, still wondering about the scent and it's intensity?

When you say not overly lanky, how tall is and are the branches thin? What is the distance between first and second set of branches? Just curious. I really like the flower but I am into both the flower and growth habit at this point. I think most people are especially those that are growing them in pots. and if it is semi lanky in the ground it will most likelly be lankier in pots, just something to consider.

Because of its location (North side of the house so only sun for part of the day) I think this will be an observation that will have to wait. I intend to give it a better spot while it is dormant this winter.
