Mystery red HT

nickelsmumz8(8)May 24, 2007

I have three mystery HTs blooming right now and I'd like to see if we can get an ID. I think this one is showing up a little more tomatoey than it looks in sunlight; but it's a true, darkish red to my eye.

As you can see, it has nice strong stems, but is getting some BS already. (I haven't sprayed since I moved in two years ago, and it doesn't defoliate.) It has a nice fragrance, not superb, IIRC -- either it's not too fragrant right now or my allergies are interfering. And finally, yes, I'm no photographer and my camera reflects that.

The shrub a few weeks ago with new growth. It's about 4' tall right now:

The shrub today with actual blooms:
