Description

New for 2020

I first saw this variety in 2012 at Shepton Mallet with the unusual salmon pink colouring really making it stand out on the benches. The blooms have great depth and stand perfectly placed on strong stems making it a good all-round variety. Grown 5 or 6 up it will produce good even sized blooms that will do well outside though probably a bit on the small size to compete with the best in this section on the benches. Growing to about 1.2 m we found this variety flowered quite early with a good flush of blooms ready for cutting at the end of August from a mid-June stop. Side buds were stripped down 3-4 pairs from the main terminal bud on each stem giving a good length of stem for cutting.  Reliable for growing outside being tolerant of North East Weather. Raised by Mr A Hayes.
