I approve of the name!... definitely not biased. :D

This is really gorgeous! I love how the green suddenly changes to dark red. Very nice!

What a great cross! It reminds me of Ruby Star, which is one of my all-time favorites.

Papilio is one of the parents. The other possibly 'Amigo'. That's all I know. 4 flowers/scape. 10-16" scape. The individual flowers do not extend above horizontal @ 6"-7" dia.
