Comments The blossom is a blend of red and yellow that is a little more subtle, more refined than most red & yellow blends, sometimes with some apricot or pink. At its best it can look smashing. Sometimes, though, when the yellow pigment doesn't form well the flowers can look a miserable, drab pink or a brownish lavender. The flowers are produced in clusters with good regularity on a bushy plant that is diease resistant.
