Hybridizer intro notes:

28" SEv/D M 4 3/4". Tet.
An unusual dark plum-raisin-mulberry blend with a mauve watermark and a blend of yellow-to-lime in the throat. The petals are finished with lavish white edges on the elegant ruffles and all combine to add to 'Big City Nights' distinction. The substance is excellent and the color stands up as well to the sun as any I have seen. The pollen is fertile, and although I have set pods on it, it is not easy. 19 buds. Seedling No. C0300 (Thunder And Lightning X Awesome Bob).
