(Lusty Lealand x Chelsea Bridge) X Long Stocking
These crimson, palm-shaped flowers float above dark green foliage. The blooms open flat with almost no recurve. A large yellow-green throat extends onto both petals and sepals. 4 way branching and 20 buds insure a long bloom period. PALM DESERT makes a handsome clump with many flowers blooming at once and is a standout in the middle of the season.
