Tangerine Machine

It's the color. No, it's the budcount. Well, it's both. Watch out, here comes Tangerine Machine.

This big brawny plant was nicknamed "Big Fan Dor" because of the huge emerging ramets in spring. Fulfills its promise with heavy scapes with 3-way branching, carrying 25-30 buds. 

The color is a rich burnt orange, flushed red, with a gold midrib and gold throat and tiny olive heart. Wide segments fold back gently. Thick creped substance. Tangerine Machine begins first week of July.

Dick Bennett's Genesee Fire is a strong dormant plant with intense orange-red flowers. David Kirchhoff's Marilyn Siwik is light orange with red eye and evergreen habit. This is my third introduction from this cross, following last year's Finger Lakes Charlie Z. and 2014's Castilian Gold.

Beautiful dormant foliage was admired by Di DeCaire. Strong grower, fast increaser, proliferates. What more could you ask for?
