| "WARRIOR KING (Schreiner '85) was almost through blooming, but still showed the potential for being the finest of many wonderful Schreiner reds. We in Oklahoma are grateful that it blooms earlier, for many of the reds and blacks tend to "blast" in the bud as the hot weather begins to move in towards the end of our bloom season. WARRIOR KING's branching, bud count, and vigor are notably improved, and the finish of the flower is more of a refined, velvet approach rather than the bright, sassy gloss of the Stevens' reds."
