'Io's Fire'

‎'Io's Fire'. ESA description: Gerr'y Mattijetz 1996. Bright orange with a lighter orange midstripe and small magenta throat. Outer petals slightly darker orange. Loose, double, cup and saucer form. Flat branched growth. {XL} 'Mrs. Beardsley' x 'Acapulco Sunset.' Reg #11938.

This did not bloom XL for me, it measured 7-1/2" across, but this is a first-time bloomer for me and the plant is still rather small. Had a second bloom and that one measured 9" across.
