Hybridizer notes:
TET (Tet. Red Eye Dynamite x seedling), semi evergreen. 6 flower, 5-way branching. 32 buds on a 30 scape.
This is a fantastic parent! The seedlings from Hank Williams have been extraordinary. The Tet. Red Eye Dynamite parentage has intensified the eye zone and edge color which is imparted to its progeny. Hank Williams is beautiful cream flower with a large very dark reddish purple eye and edge.
Fertile both ways
