X seedling# N595-1. Schreiner 1963.
| From Schreiner’s catalog, 1963: GYPSY JEWELS (Schreiner 1963) M. 35". $15.00. Here is a ruby to garnet red of different tonal value from any red we have previously introduced. It is emphatically not a dull red but rich and jewel-like. The crisply flaring blooms have ideal classic form, remarkable substance, and a plushy sheen on the falls. Haft markings are totally absent. There is a hint of chocolate in the coloring. This is one of the finest reds we have released and only our failure to get a large picture of it prevents a full-size catalog color plate. The small picture on page 53, made from a small film, does not do justice to Gypsy Jewels. R440A.
