Palm Desert X Bali Watercolor
Adept at the ancient arts of the cloak and the dagger and dedicated to the uncovering of the truth regardless of the danger, this FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT presents a dashing figure in the garden. The large 9" flowers are a deep burgundy red with an extended chartreuse throat. The sepals recuve consistently and the petals pinch or fold half back around pink midribs. These intriguing blossoms are held on sturdy 37" scapes with 3 way branching and 20 buds.
