Hatsugarasu. Japan. 1929. Japanese suffruticosa. Also known as Ubatama. A very darkly pigmented red single flower. Given a good growing location it can attain heights of 5 to 6 feet and present many blooms. It is sensitive to overly wet conditions, so be sure to plant it in a well drained location. This plant was heavily used in hybridizing F1 lutea hybrids by Saunders and Daphnis during their breeding days. A very nice Japanese suffruticosa and collectors plant. Ships in late September to mid October. Field grown, 4+ year old graft or division from larger plants – our choice of available plant material upon harvest.
