Just For You, bred by Ralph Moore, California 1990.
While Ralph Moore doesn't produce a lot of classic Hybrid Tea form minis, this is a recent introduction from his company that fits that description. Introduced by Sequoia Nursery in 1990, it won the ARS Award of Excellence the following year.
I have grown this variety for only one season so far, so I cannot say that I have had an opportunity to fully evaluate its merits. It has grown well for me, producing the most beautiful blooms repeatedly all summer long. In fact, it bloomed more than many of my other minis.
you can see here, the color is a rich hue that is both red and deep
pink, and depending on the weather, it can be either deep bright red,
or a deep pink. Both colors are just as attractive. Disease resistance
appears to be excellent, and it should be quite hardy to at least zone
