Full Description

TB 36″ EM

Deep red-black self with lighter area at base of midribs; clean brownish hafts; velvety finish; beard brown tipped blue-violet.

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1975: “A worthy newcomer in the luxuriant velvety deep red-blacks. The color recalls its progenitor EDENITE, but this newer variety has a greater sophistication with precise sculptured blooms with silken finish and a strong branched stem and matching beard.”
