$100.00 Double Fan
(Reed, 2014) 42" M 6.5" dormant, diploid uf
Grown from a brilliant cross made by David Metzger of Hanover, VA, this is a deep black-purple that is sunfast and has heavy substance. With 2-3 way branching and 14-16 buds, it is impressive with its huge blooms. There is a faint darker band that shows up in some weather, and a deep green throat. It has a velvety surface texture.
Pod and pollen fertile, this has been a fabulous parent for rich rose to purple colors for us.
