Here is the description and parentage:
S. sandy red; style arms sandy red, edged golden red; F. ruby red, hafts
heavily veined, sand red center stripe, lower portion of F. red black; beards
rusty orange; ruffled. 89004: (Chief Redskin x 85015: (Mirror Mirror x Burgundy
Brown)) X Chief Redskin.
Also note: it grows to 43 inches tall!!
You know I'm surprised that with that parentage it
turned out as red as it did. With "Burgundy Brown" in it's background I
can imagine that some mighty vigorous plicatas can come about when using this
one. I'm hoping it survived for you. :-)

It's good to see a picture of this one.
Not quite what I expected. It looks like a self x plicata mix. I'd
bought it for the Hamner background and for possible inclusion in one of my
red plicata lines. It was in a new bed when the freeze/drought hit and
I'm not sure of it's current condition.

This photo is of ARIZONA REDHEAD, a Don
Shepard 1998 introduction. This photo was also taken in Phoenix.
This struck me as a pretty nice red.
