Grows in a blocky shape, about as wide as tall, about four feet in four years. Probably as dramatic a flower as you will find in vireyas. A good grower and nearly constant bloomer in the landscape.

Medium shrub with good branching growth habit. Leaves are somewhat narrow with a fine point, glossy green. Truss is lax with 3-8 bright, salmon pink flowers, the most "salmon" of the pinks. Possibly a natural hybrid. Collected and registered by Lucie Sorenson-Smith.

Sunset Gold 50Sunset Gold 50 R. aurigeranum X unknown
Absolutely luminous in the landscape, catches the eye from a long distance. Just describing it as "medium orange with a yellow throat" does not do it justice. Reputed to have up to fifty flowers in a truss. We have only counted into the thirties, but the image on vireya.net certainly suggests 50!
Sunset Fantasy Sunset Fantasy (R. laetum x R. zoelleri Golden Gate) X (R. zoelleri x R. leucogigas)
