Here is a quote from Toby Lander at Young's garden center in Roseburg OR
regarding the parentage of 'Dragon's Eye'
I confirmed with Kevin Vaughn that it is a
hybrid of 'Killer' x self - so Toby's assumption is correct.

"That's one of Kevin's (Vaughn's) cultivars. It was one from the first year that
he got back into hybridizing semps.
He was using Killer a lot then if I recall correctly.
Because there were so many good varieties in Kevin's first batch of seedlings,
that one was never officially named.
We kept the unnamed seedling because we liked it a lot and it increases well.
One of our children started calling it Dragon's Eye so
when we began selling it in 2016 we just put that name to it.
Hope that helps,
Toby Lander
Young's Garden"

New database entry - so anyone with this plant is now able to add it to your plant list!
Please share pics of your 'Dragon's Eye' here as well as the database Thumbs up

Lynn, It's one that I gave the whole clump to Toby. It's number was A2-7 and my notes say "bright red, with better red color than Killer". That's about right. It also seems to be one of the bigger ones from the self pollination, harking more back to Killer's pod parent in form and color.

This morning.
I would not say it's red very beep purple in coloration. Is a good increase. I have mine in a window box pot. I know why Kevin didn't choose this one as the stolons are a bit long and chick don't arrange them selves in that nice crown affect.

What a beautiful plant.

I feel fortunate that I was able to get a Dragon's Eye plant from Youngs. It arrived about a month ago. Mine looks nothing like Julia's, but hopefully it will. But it is looking very healthy.
