Growth Habit The plant habit is upright and dense.

General Bloom This bloom has consistent form and falls in one piece. The stamens are bright yellow, prominent and contrast well against the dark red petals which are often notched on the outer edges.
Plant & Leaves The medium green leaves have medium serration and average 3" x 2". The plant is suitable for landscaping use. Because this seedling has thrived in a very poor location it is believed that this cultivar must possess a tenacious aspect useful for landscaping. Also it shared bloom contrast similar to 'Yuletide' but with larger leaves similar to it's parent japonica 'Lady Clare' . Further testing is warranted to determine it's suitability for the nursery/landscape trade which seems to embrace similar cultivars such as 'Shishi-Gashira' and 'Yuletide'.
