Double Cordovan

Fine Spanish leather from Cordoba has a distinctive color. This blend of burgundy-red and dark rose is called Cordovan.

The flower has broad round petals around a center of raised petaloids, which often show white edges. The color is Cordovan red with highlights of henna and maroon. Crimped petals and green throat complete the picture.

This plant came from a cross of two siblings, one which had good doubling but was very short, the other tall but only semi-double. This consistently double performer has a good flower-to-height ratio.

A fast grower and increaser, producing many scapes. Very hardy. Budcount 12-14.
