*TALLADEGA  (Stamile, P.) TET 6248-E {Born to Run X [(Scarlet Lace x Seize The Night) x Complementary Colors] 29” Ere. no fr. emo. Ev. 5.75” x 3.75” x 2”. 4-way branching (2 laterals plus terminal “y”). 28 buds.

            Early blooming reds are a treasure in the garden and TALLADEGA is the best we have done to date. This brilliant clear rose red with a pink watermark and white ruffled edging is gorgeous in providing color other than yellow to the early season.

            I have always felt that white edging would be stunning in a red flower and TALLADEGA certainly bears this out. TALLADEGA is also one of the few reds I have seen with deep flutes, ruffles and angel wings.

            An outstanding flower. Fertile both ways. Very limited.
