If I may bud in, it's called ancestral as it is believed to be the
ancestral form of rubra gulfensis. These plants grow in a few counties
in Western GA. If you look at a map, these plants are north east of of
gulfensis country. It is believed that these plants migrated down the
chattahoochee water shed to the gulf coast area. Interestingly enough,
these plants seem to be a mishmash or characteristics of all rubra
forms. Very nice plants!
