HVH: "'Midnight Dream' is one of our Fascinating Foliage hybrids. The flower is a 6-8" brown single with a black eye surrounded by an intense red halo and rays.
The unusual leaves are large, lush, and especially beautiful. 'Midnight Dream' is the offspring of 'Crème de Cacao' and 'Midnight Blue.' Released from HVH in 2011."
