A 2018 Broken Arrow Nursery introduction that is the result of a hybrid involving the same parentage as the classic selection 'Hartlage Wine'. Overall plants are strong growing and create a breathtaking display in the garden. In late spring and early summer, spectacular rich maroon blossoms engulf the plants adding an incredible visual display. Each 3" blossom offers abundant, prominently pointed tepals and petals. The outer structures are rich burgundy-red in color and contrast starkly with near white inner petals. The overall impact creates a feel that is several shades darker than 'Hartlage Wine'. When not in bloom the bold textured leaves add appeal. Each leaf is bright green in color and can reach 8-10" in diameter on vigorous shoots. Plants are excellent in large mixed borders and can be expected to reach 10-15' at maturity.
