*PURSUING PASSION
 
 
*PURSUING PASSION -- (Bloodfire x Drowning in Desire). Sev. 5.5” fl., 26” sc. M. 20-25 buds.  ‘Pursuing Passion’ came from breeding the best of my red lines with gold edging.  Both of the parents are dark reds, while ‘Pursuing Passion’  turned out to be lighter than either parent, blooming as a dark rose to rose red.  The flowers have very wide recurved petals, which creates a round flower.  The petals are also beautifully ruffled with serrated, bubbly gold edges.  At the center of the flowers is a deep green throat.
