I picked this one out for the garden of a friend who loves orange, and it's one of the most spectacular blooms I've ever seen -- huge and long-lasting, since it's still gorgeous when blown fully open. Plus, it's got those wonderful greggii leaf markings.

The color is an orange-red, sort of a flame color, some have said paprika. I think it would look great with a purple tulip and am planning to try it with 'Passionale'.
