I don't have the Kerrigan Goblin now. Years ago I had a cutting snipped from
some public planting that I later identified as Goblin. It was a great
performer. I think the petals were a bit more irregular than I really like,
but the red color and the dark leaves were very striking. That said, I don't
fully trust myself to identify varieties that I find or get without data (what
the courts would call "chain of custody" for evidence) and always mark the
plant with a "(?)" on labels and in my notes. I confess I've sometimes done
that with plants received from growers that didn't quite conform to my
understanding or memory of the variety. This Goblin(?) did not have a white
center, but I don't remember the stigma.
Do you grow Redondo? I remember that being similar to "Kerrigoblin."
