High Octane

42" ML (Tangled Web X (Charleston x ((Rosariea x ((Rancho Rose x (Flamenco sib x (Roundup sib x April Melody ))) x Gigolo)) x Power Surge)))

Tall stalks with up to three branches, eight or nine buds. Lots of energy here, a plicata with reddish brown standards barely showing pale yellow ground, atop falls with wide, dark port wine borders which dot and ray into the vibrant golden lemon central area. Inconspicuous mustard brown beards. If you want something louder, get yourself a boom box.
Seedling #01-40A
