A classic triphylla cultivar bearing bunches of reddish salmon-pink tubular flowers. Vigorous and easy to grow.

Apparently not quite as sensitive to cold as most triphyllas, but still not frost hardy.

Also known as 'Börnemann's Best'.

Tube: Reddish salmon-pink, long, flared.

Sepals: Reddish salmon-pink with green tips, held fully down.

Corolla: Salmon pink, spoon shaped petals, unflared.

Foliage: Dark olive green.

Parentage: F. triphylla x unknown.
