Gardeners' Notes:

TIME LORD arrived to me as two puny little plants, sent free as the grower was dismayed at how bad they were. They grew pretty well. I gave one to a friend. The other bloomed once for me, making me fall in love with it, but has not managed to bloom since, though I still have it. When I find another plant at a reasonable price I'll buy it Occasionally one gets a bad clone, one that didn't get all of the genetics it should have.

The first photo here is pink -- TL is NEVER pink, I've seen it in several gardens over the years. And if it was going to be pink, Florida sun would cause that!

Here is the most extensive description of this flower I've ever found:

TET velvety red with maroon overlay that darkens at the edges, 1/2" orange watermark type eyezone which does not appear on the sepals, yellow to yellow-green throat. Petals rounded & overlap, sepals same color. fertile [Munson '83] registered Ev though it acts semi-evergreen farther north.
