*JACK OF HEARTS
 
 
 
*JACK OF HEARTS -- (Restless Warrior x Drowning in Desire) Sev., 5.5 fl., 22 sc., M.  Jack of Hearts has been one of my favorite flowers since its maiden bloom.  It was one of those flowers that I knew I would introduce the moment I saw it.  Jack of Hearts has been my most heavily used red in hybridizing, and is the parent of my best future red introductions.  The flowers are an intense, saturated, velvet red with a lighter watermark.  The petal edges are very ruffled and looped, carrying a crimped platinum to gold edge.  The scapes are well branched with  2 laterals and top branching, carrying 20 to 25 buds.  The plants grow well from Canada to Florida.  A richly saturated color, greatly admired by visitors.
