New for 2020.
Stunning rich burgundy red Small Decorative with blooms held well on good strong stems. A real eye catcher for its colour with the flowers holding up well in all but the wettest of weather. Growing 8 flowering stems per plant and stripping down the side buds by 3-4 pairs will give good, even sized blooms for exhibition and cut flower. The strong growing plants get to a height of approx. 1.2m.
The Royalty payments for this variety, raised by Gordon Hodgson, will be going to The Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust, based in Spennymoor, Co. Durham at the request of Gordon and his brother Harold.
