Description

A lovely delicate looking variety from John Willott. The finely fimbriated blooms of a soft peachy pink with a lemon base are full of body but actually a lot more weatherproof than they look. Growing to approx. 1.2m high this has been shown regularly over the last few years at main shows where there is a class for this group. For show bench quality blooms the plants are best restricted to 6 flowering stems and disbudded to 3-4 pairs below the terminal bud. Just to enjoy the sheer pleasure of these exquisite flowers in the garden and for cutting the plants can be stopped at 4 pairs of leaves and all subsequent side shoots allowed to develop. It would still be better to remove the first pair of buds at least from below the terminal bud on each stem to allow the blooms to develop more fully. Regular dead heading will ensure a continuous display of flowers. Good for exhibition, garden and for cut flower use.
