(Culver B, 2015, 36", 5.5", ML SEV Tet, 4-way branching, 25 buds)  His description includes:  A ruffled rose-red with a light white watermark above a large bold green throat.  Exceptional plant habit with a continuing display of clear-colored blemish-free flowers.  A rapid multiplier.  One of the best parents we have ever used, producing so many select seedlings we have had a problem finding space for all of them.

-- Comments:  Consistently formed flowers and strong performance, though still fairly new to my Zone 4 northern garden.  Parent of his MAUREEN STRONG.
