Chartres x Place D'Etoile
I distinctly remember the moment that I first noticed this bloom. After putting in my 8 hours at work one day, I was running around the yard making crosses and rounding the corner at a fast trot, intending to make other crosses when I caught sight of this bloom.
It totally captured my attention and then I went to feel the substance of the petals. WOW, WOW, WOW! If the name Lips Like Leather wasn't taken, I surely would use it for this plant.
