Description

Superb orangy-red of good form and regulalry seen on the show bench. Later flowering than some we would suggest a mid June stop for exhibiting at mid September shows. 1.2m. The naming of this variety has been much debated over the last few years having been also sold as Kenora Wildfire. It has been removed from the current (2015) NDS Classified List having been included in the last classifed list as a Dual classified variety able to be shown as a Giant or Large Decorative. For the best size flowers remove the growing point when 4-5 pairs of leaves have developed and thin resulting side shoots down to allow only 3-5 shoots to develop  (2 if exhibiting as a Giant, 4 -5 if exhibiting as a Large). Once the terminal bud has developed and is about the size of a 10p piece 3 pairs of the side buds can be removed to further maximise flower size. If you are growing solely for garden display then all flowers can be allowed to develop but resulting flowers will be smaller. Dead head regularly.
