My first bloom was a very pretty, saturated red. I have not noticed any fading; however, it has been rainy during its bloom time. I will report here if it fades. But i dont agree that all red DLs fade.

Not reliably double and the color doesn't hold up that well in the sun - a fairly common problem with reds. There are other double reds available that are much better choices than this one.
