The parents of Barefoot Mailman are (L. briegeri x Slc. Madge Fordyce) Its 4-5 flowers have excellent shape and colour, and they are well held on a sturdy stem 8-10” above the foliage. For this hybrid, the objective is to produce small plants with good stems holding high 3-4 flowers. The colours will range from orange to red with some exhibiting splashes in darker red.
