A herbaceous hybrid by Saunders in 1950.  The flowers are large - 10cm diameter and the bush does not reach a great height because the long stems tend to flop. The flowers fade with age, rendering the bright red flares very prominent. The parentage is complex (lactiflora X officinalis X macrophylla X mlokosewitschii). Plant Source: Binny
