Gitano

ML 36" (Last Laugh X (Prince George X Braggadocio))

Hard to believe this wild gypsy is a sibling to the refined Restless Heart! Totally raucous and unrestrained, with peach standards, imperial purple falls with light velvet finish, and apricot peach triangular sunburst area around solid red orange beards. Light ruffling is the only "modest" part of the mix. Good branching (terminal, usually three branches) and buds (up to nine).
Seedling #99-48N
