Rainy Night in Georgia (Bouman 2016)
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.
