(Darla Anita x (Moment in the Sun x Macho Macho man). Sev. 7" fl. 27" sc. M 20 buds. Fertile both ways. These are massive, bright, boldly colored, saturated orange blooms with gold highlights. The petals have ruffles piled on top of ruffles, with the ruffling extending almost to the midribs. The ruffles continue into the throat area as large looping ruffles. At the center of the flower is a deep green throat. Admired by many hybridizers, including Pat Stamile, who commented that they were the largest orange flowers he could remember seeing. These flowers are so large and so intensely colored, it always stops garden visitors in their tracks.
