Small 3-4″ single black red, 10 petaled terminal flowers, bloom just on top of foliage, followed by a few late stems w/o laterals that bloom still higher. Vigorous plant, 30” height, dense green segmented leaves—young foliage deep red, remaining for some time. Somewhat narrowed petals. No seed, and extremely sparse pollen. An excellent landscape plant for foliage. Seedling # RPWS-19
