This gorgeous, fiery double rose coral tangerine produces blooms that are sometimes either hose-in-hose or petaloid form and sometimes in a combination of the two types of double. Selected by a leading horticulturalist to honor his mother, it was the color that drew him for a closer look from 100 yards away. When close enough to enjoy the amazing double form, enhanced by tiny ruffles on its segments, he declared that this had to be the one!
