Color Category: red
Bloom Time: May
Comments: Found growing in a field of R. 'Vulcan', but with some different characteristics. The leaves are larger, flatter, and thicker, making it less suceptable to tip burn and consequently, more tolerant of sun exposure. The flowers are still the same size as 'Vulcan' and still a bright red.
