Description

This variety impressed most people when first seen at Wisley in 2014, where it was winner of both the G.F Crowley Perpetual Cup and the prestigious “Jescot” Perpetual Challenge Cup. Lovely blends of warm apricot and yellow with excellent form as a true cactus, this is, I am sure, going to be around for some time. We have found the flowers to be very weatherproof holding their form in all but the worst Northumbrian weather! Although producing quality blooms for exhibition we would also suggest this as a very good garden and cut flower variety as it has a fairly compact and sturdy habit with cut blooms lasting well in water . Raised by Les Jackson and introduced in 2015
