Wow, Neil  --  what a red!  ROGUE, in my garden, was border bearded in height, nowhere near the 38" in its registration description.  What's the height of this seedling?  And yes, this really does illustrate the umbrata effect.  I'd sure like to see what this seedling crossed with my rebloomer HAUNTING (attached) would produce, since HAUNTING is a red-violet with the umbrata, although it appears slightly more blue-violet in the photo.  --  Griff

This seedling, number R 24-5 is from (Rogue X Power Woman), the latter from (Swingtown x Romantic Evening).  The pattern, genetically, is self X (self x Umbrata) and demonstrates the dominance of the Umbrata trait.
The photo is more of a brick red than the flower, although the effect of the seedling is of a red with very dark Umbrata falls.
The siblings were mostly of the same type.
