Description:

Holy Moly... someone get an extinguisher! For SURE this baby looks explosive! VERY dark blood-red (with a slight cast of chocolate brown)... yet retains a very dynamic and large lighter eyewash (on both petals and sepals). Watch your knickers... this hot-head might just catch 'em on fire if you're not payin' it attention!

This flower is very unusual, in that it undergoes an actual pigment change during the course of the day. The entire flower appears to have been "smoked", which is amazing to watch!

This flower is dedicated to one of my very best long-time friends... Richie Fedrigon (of Bloomsburg, PA). You see, when Richie decided to help cook Thanksgiving dinner a few years before leaving PA... his "stuffed mushroom surprise" caught our oven on fire, and nearly burned down our house! It's not been easy, but I've long forgiven Richie for his little "holiday treat"... and we're the best of friends again to this day. Indeed... I love ya, Richie. Just because... you're YOU!!! ;-)
