An extract from the Flashback gene pool, ‘Antares’ has its family’s characteristic red-backed petals, this time fronted by tricolored patterns: bright orange on their tips, peachy in the middle, and yellow toward the base. Blossoms range from densely doubled to half doubled, becoming simpler and sometimes changing colors as the plant matures. A stellar flower-powered light show. Introduced by Johnny’s
