Category: SKU: RYEBLAtub


This stunning variety from Phil Godsmark has been much talked about, especially since seen at Wisely in 2016. A profusion of dark red flowers are borne from August through to the frosts. Flowers are well formed having a very neat pom formation. As the season progresses the colour changes to a rich burnt orange. Occasional white petals may appear, particularly on later blooms, but these can be easily pulled out at an early stage as the flowers develop, particularly if using for showing. IIf growing for showing then a double stop is advisable to get as many breaks on the plant as possible to keep the size of the flowers down. Grow as many blooms up as the plant will support only disbudding at a late stage and for getting stem length for cutting. The rich colour of this variety also makes it ideal as a cut flower. Strong plants grow to 1.2-1.5m. Suitable for Exhibition, garden show and for cutting.
