A 2009 Marietta Gardens Introduction. Run Away Red (Ribbons And Curls x Seedling) is A Bright Cherry Red Spider with a large 8 inch flower on 31 inch tall scapes. She is a ML blooming time Diploid that is Nocturnal, opening in the late evenings with both an Extended Bloom time and also listed as a Rebloomer !, but i have not had her long enough to see yet. She was a gift plant to me from Faye Shooter of Marietta Gardens. A green yellow charteuse throat and long curving sepals make her really kool and she is extremely fragrant!! 4-Way Branching and 18 Buds..mike.
