Note courtesy of Charles Black, hybridizer (Posted with permission, on his behalf)

'Fallen Hero' blooms with 7-9" single flowers in shades of pink that vary from a soft dusty pink to a vivid raspberry, with a deep maroon eye. The bush is excellent, medium-sized, very upright and very floriferous, like its mother, 'High Voltage.' Its color is deepened by the genes of its father, 'Orville Davis.' Released from HVH in 2008.
