It may not have a white tube, but Scarcity has other hallmark James Lye features - quality and robustness. A classic, one of his best cultivars, especially recommended for a 1/2 standard.

Free branching, vigorous, ample flowers of excellent form and colour, responds well to training, what's not to like?

Tube: Deep glossy scarlet, quite short and plump.

Sepals: Deep glossy scarlet, broad, held slightly up, recurved tips.

Corolla: Deep purple, matures to lighter shade, 1/4 flared.
