This is an unusual relatively upright-growing cultivar that grows easily with many bright pinkish-orange (or orangish-pink) flowers. It has only recently entered into wide distribution although it has long been in cultivation.

Jude Neumann, of Minnesota, had been given it many years ago under the name ‘Campus Queen’, but it turns out not to be that hybrid of C. linearis. In honor of Jude’s long-term nurturing of this fine cultivar it has been formally introduced with her name.

Another, more formal, photo can be seen here, and a much smaller show plant here.
