Description

A new variety for 2019 which is a little stunner! The rich lavender pink blooms are held at the perfect angle on good stems proportionate to the size of the flowers. Blyton Stella received a very good write up in the 2018 Winter Bulletin and has already created a bit of a name for itself. For the purist exhibitors, the high petal count and easy to match centres should make this a popular choice but it will also prove to be good variety for the garden and for cutflower use as the plants are compact and sturdy growing to just over 1m. Look forward to seeing this on the benches in years to come.
