A recent selection that is the result of 5 generations of breeding at Broken Arrow Nursery. Notable parentage includes the Kalmia latifolia selections 'Carol', 'Sharon Rose', and 'Sarah'. Plants offer brilliant, deep red flower buds that open near white and age to pale pink. The overall effect is a striking, bicolor display of red-budded and white open flowers. This floral affect, combined with the glossy, dark green foliage and excellent disease resistance make it a promising alternative to 'Olympic Fire' and other red-budded cultivars. Plants are more compact than the species maturing approximately 4' by 4' in 10 years under normal garden conditions.
