Rainy Night in Georgia (Bouman 2016)

Picture of Rainy Night in Georgia

Rainy Night in Georgia (2016) Intelligent Design X Cosmic Odyssey

Tetraploid.   Veined dark reddish purple with a notched dark violet eyezone and a bright green throat surrounded by a zone of burnt orange.  5.5, 31, Dormant, Early midseason, rebloom, cool morning opener.   5 branches widely spaced, 20 buds, fertile both ways.

The first day I saw this I thought, "Helleluja!  A scape on a Cosmic Odyssey kid!"  I hope you'll remember Brook Benton's rendition of the song, "Rainy Night in Georgia" when you enjoy this in your garden.
