height 40 in.(101 cm), bloom 6.5 in.(16 cm), season EM, Rebloom, Dormant, Tetraploid, 25 buds, 4 branches, Coral rose with pastel orange and yellow halo, tiny green throat and ornately ruffled edge.. (Wonder of It All × Red Friday) Full sib to Honor and Majesty with the same great plant habit. Consistent rebloom. I was unable to set the pods I wanted on it this year but thought it had set pods in the past. The pollen is good but I can't be sure about pod fertility.
This was named after our big old mutt, Nate, who I thought was the ugliest pup I'd seen! When we moved to this property, Doug wanted another dog and my son said his friend had a litter of pups to give away. Nate was the one my son brought to us, and less than 24 hours later, it was apparent he was sick. A vet visit revealed he had Parvo. We were dismayed, and as we left for a trip to the local Amish grocery, I prayed, "Lord, did you give us this dog just so we could watch him die?!" We were dumbfounded when we came home and he was waiting for us at the attached garage door where we were trying to keep him comfortable. He wanted to eat, and eat he did! He went from deathly ill to bouncing off the walls, just like that, and never showed any more signs of illness. He was rambunctious, and our old dog Taz, disapproved of him bugging her as he grew. She permanently shortened one ear! He grew to be a handsome, drooling, 100 lb mutt that we will never forget. We lost him this year and this flower is in remembrance of him, our furever friend, NATE.
