INTERESTING INFO:
From the hybridizer Loc Tasquier: Both parents are rebloomers. But none of the seedlings have ever rebloomed. From this cross, 'Yoruba' was the only seedling with blue beards like 'Gypsy Boy'. The others had yellow beards like 'Hot'. 'Yoruba' carries 3 flowers that smell sweet and spicy like 'Hot'. It is on the tall side of SDBs and sometimes blooms out of range.
