Unusual seedling

When I first posted this seedling, it was suggested that it might not be consistent. Well, to my surprise, it is! Odd little seedling but I like it. Opinions? Name suggestions? Current code name: Road Runner.

Judith, it's beautiful! It's frilly and unique. How about "frillique"? "Sine Wave"? "Crinoline Wine"?

Thanks for the suggestions and comments, everyone. No, Kim, it's out of Night Owl. Unfortunately, I lost the Art Nouveau in the heat of last summer. :(

Sure has the look of a triumph of uniqueness and appeal ... congratulations. Partial white petal trim reminds me of Baron Giraud de l'Ain

Wow.

It looks like the wave is produced by a bilateral necrotizing factor of some sort. You can see dead tissue along the fringe of white in that area of the petals. Do you have any closeup photos of nearly spent blooms?
What doesn't kill them makes them stronger.

Wow, Judith. That is very striking. Love the eye and the ruffles!

Would you call it a "wine" color? I dunno... "Splash of wine" or "wine ruffles" or "Red Ruffles"...

I kinda like the idea of "splash" in the name, personally. To me it evokes the shape, and perhaps the eye.

But then, your rose-cross by any other name would look just as sweeeet...

I hope it has good health and rebloom too. If so, that's a real winner! (If I had a bit more space and a secure yard, I would very quickly volunteer to test down here in BS heaven. ;-) )

Are you holding the pedigree close for the moment, or willing and able to share?

...Or something evoking a Tutu, or flamenco dancer's dress... Maybe just Flamenco? Flamenco Dancer? Twirling Flamenco?

Yeah... I kinda like that last one. (Google any image of flamenco to see why...)
