From Blue J Iris online catalog, 2017: RED VELVET CAKE - Leonard & Kathryn Jedlicka, 2012, TB, 38-39”, EM. The 3-dimentional velvet is what makes this red special. The color holds well and doesn’t fade. Standards are brownish-red with some black velvet, but the broad roundish falls have even more and they look like textured tapestry cloth with the extra shades and sheens. The falls almost touch at the shoulders and have whitish stripes on the hafts. Style arms are red-brown and yellow, and the beards have gold tips on red base hairs. 7-8 black buds with nice ruffles, thick substance and a slight sweet smell form on good branches with many stalks. (Formerly seedling 3-15A4)Dynamite X Red Rider.
