Really large flowers, 8 inches plus, exterior of deep purple-pink and a lighter pink interior, open mid-season missing the early frosts. It is supposed to maintain a good leader though we can't be certain of this personally as we've cut our stock so hard to get this into production for you.
Spectacular large, ruby-red flowers and compact size characterize this trouble-free nursery plant. Even the large winter flower buds are ornamentally appealing with their distinctively thick protective covering of brownish gray "fur" to shield them from the cold. In full bloom, this short plant is un-rivaled for attractiveness because the blooms are so up easy to see up close.
