Streetcar Named Desire has been the most important red to come from my
hybridizing program. It has been my best parent, and has imparted
a whole new look to my red lines, adding very large size and heavy
substance. These flowers, reminiscent of huge beefsteak tomatoes,
have a deep green throat surrounded by a lighter watermark. A
heavy gold edge surrounds the beautifully ruffled flowers. These
are large, commanding flowers carried on tall, well branched scapes.
