As hybridizers continued to successfully develop larger and larger standard cultivars endowed with form, color and increased texture, smaller flowers having the same attributes started getting overlooked by breeders and show judges, solely because of their lack of size. Scarlet Tanager only further justifies the once debated establishment of the “intermediates”, a category created to showcase and reward naturally smaller sized cultivars in divisions 1-4 & 11. It is a perfectly formed rounded bloom, with wide petals of a rich, clear yellow and a bowl shaped cup of fiery orange/red. An intermediate capable of winning Best Bloom in the whole show!
