(LA) 'Devil's Scion'

1973, McGarvey

'Devil's Scion' ( William McGarvey, R. 1973). Seedling 68-I f-16. LA, 16" (41 cm), Midseason bloom. Red-orange self. 'Devil's Advocate' X 'Devil's Advocate'. Old Brook 1973.

FOXFIRE [DEVIL'S SCION] (1973) 16". From Devil's Advocate selfed. It was the best of a number of seedlings from this pollenation and is so much like its parent in appearance that it is difficult to tell them apart. It needs moist humusy soil. Like its parent this plant reblooms in Oswego, New York. Devil's Advocate is genetically important because it provides a second source of genes (if only a bit different) for I. fulva reblooming in Northern regions. Its flowers are a bright reddish orange. Net $35.00.

Note: Erroneously listed as Foxfire by Old Brook Gardens in AIS Bulletin #209, April, 1973.
