[MISTER LUCKY x TET EYE OF NEWT]
-- Comments: Not a real red in my Zone 4 northern garden where it appears a dark orange red. But the eye is definitely black, and was passed on in a cross with Vertical Horizon. Consistently formed flowers. Somewhat tender in my Zone 4 northern garden where it has enjoyed the last 2 summers (2017, 2018) which warmed up earlier than usual.
