Flame was awarded the AGM at Harlow Carr in 2004 under the name Olympic Flame. It has since been sold as Flame in Unwin’s picture packets. However, Olympic Flame was intended to be an exhibitor’s version of First Flame, having the advantage of longer stems.
Visitors admired a group of tall bushes of Flame in the glasshouse at Rush, flowering profusely. We harvested plenty of seed, enabling us to release Flame in time for showing in 2014.
