(IB) 'Nocturnal'

1940, Grant

'Nocturnal' ( Dr. Henry Lee Grant, R. 1940). IB. Very late bloom. Color Class-R7D. (Parentage lost). Fairmount 1940.

From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1942: NOCTURNAL (Grant 1940) L. The darkest velvety red Intermediate that I have seen. The standards are very deep red and nicely closed. The flaring falls are so darkly flushed that they seem almost black, and the almost brown beard adds to the dense red black effect. A late freely flowering variety. 20 in. $1.00
