7, 28, Dor, ML, 3 branches, 14 buds, fertile both ways. Heavily ruffled bright golden orange with a faint flame red halo above a gold to olive throat. Flowers have a look of spiritual generosity. Makes hefty plants with thick scapes.
This is the last registration in a series based on the first stanza of the hymn, "Come Down O Love Divine."

And kindle it, thy Holy Flame Bestowing.
