from the hybridizer -

"(MILANESE MANGO X STRAWBERRY CANDY)

30" L to VL Re SEV 4.5" TET

Very unusual, mango orange with darker etched eye and chalky watermark above yellow-green throat. Three-way branching with 18 buds and stunning in a clump. Vigorous and a great addition to the late garden. TAHLEQUAH is the capital of the Cherokee Nation and the FLAME represents the spirit of the Cherokee people."
