Hybridizer’s Description: We are finally introducing the first in a series of exquisite doubles from the talented hybridizing program of Janet Benz. Janet always loved the doubles, and urged me to convert Lucille Guidry's wonderful diploid BRENT GABRIEL. The moment she spied this conversion, she was on her way. We have selected about a dozen of these Tet. BRENT GABRIEL doubles for evaluation, and at least 3 more will be introduced in the future. This one is the deepest in color, opening nearly black, and fading to a ripe bing-cherry color. Always perfect as shows, fully double hose-in-hose style, and never a single bloom in the last 3 years. Very evergreen, and scapes are too short, blooming right on top of the foliage, with about 12-15 buds and no branching, still, there is nothing else like this, and garden visitors hover around it despite its obvious flaws. Fertile both ways; pollen is easier. Deep red self above green throat., 100%double, reblooms
