Description

Much admired in our fields, the flower colour of this old decorative variety, first introduced in 1968, is fairly well described in its name. The ivory peach flowers, sometimes more blush pink in summer and longer days, grow up to 25 cm across. Although not having the depth of flower that other varieties in this section have, it more than makes up for it by making a pretty spectacular display in the border, or when cut and placed in a vase. Height is up to 1.5 m. For general garden display you can allow all flowering stems to develop after removing the tip of the plant when it has produced 4 pairs of leaves.
