Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Spring Fires (Lc. Fires of Spring x Lc. Fire Island) has strong upright stems carrying 5-9 red flowers with darker red lips. It is proving to be an excellent parent, with dominance for color, strong stems and bloom period. The flowers of Star Fire (Lc. Trick or Treat x Rubescence) are deep red and produced 5-7 on a strong stem. This promising grex is the continuation in a series of steps aimed at developing the perfect head of intensely-colored, deep red flowers, held high on sturdy stems
