*NOCTURNAL BUTTERFLY
 
 
*NOCTURNAL BUTTERFLY --  (Bloodfire x John Peat) (J.T. Davis) Sev. to Ev. 6.5 fl. 30 sc. 30 buds. M.  These are large burgundy flowers with much drama, presented on tall, well branched scapes.  The flowers contain a large, darker burgundy eye, which continues around the petal edges as a burgundy picotee and is surrounded by a second gold edge.  At the center of the flower is a green throat. The flowers are heavily ruffled, with large looping ruffles. A personal favorite and one of my most heavily used cultivars during this past hybridizing season.
