Comments: With outstanding branching and bud counts, Flaming Candelabra is a bright light in the late garden. The bright red flowers really stand out when not much else is flowering, and the large number of flowers really make it a show-off! With high rust resistance and good thrips resistance, the plant is an excellent garden flower and a good breeder. Flaming Candelabra shows a small ruffled edge, but with edging genes from pollen parent Karen Stephens, it throws seedlings with a lot more edge and ruffle when mated to partners with the trait or carrying it. As if all that weren’t enough, it also shows instant rebloom, extending the flower season even further. Like pod parent Bill Fall, the foliage is not the most beautiful, but it is not terrible either and the plant is very hardy in my garden, showing excellent increase and easily surviving my most extreme winters.
