Bottle Rocket, winner of the 2019 Dykes Medal is very popular. One look at this exciting blossom, and its distinctiveness becomes apparent. The falls are incredibly engaging - ruby red, melding to cordovan at the bottom of the falls, and encircled with an extremely pretty orange border. Nestled amidst the white spray are bright orange beards. A dash of purple is almost no fair because now it’s too pretty. And we’re still not done. All of the foregoing combines with the one color in the standards that lights the fuse - golden orange flushed pink. In addition it offers a slight musky fragrance.
