TORPILLEUR (Dessert, 1913) - Jap. - Red - Midseason. Medium height. Slightly fragrant. Japanese type, large. Deep rose-red or light crimson guards, held horizontally around a large cluster of staminodes of the same color tipped pink and yellow; pale green carpels with red tips and a pink base; slightly fragrant.

Rather small foliage. A handsome, very richly colored flower which requires time to develop to its best form. Needs support if used for decoration in the garden.

Stems inclined to be weak." - Boyd. M.
