This yellow sport of Gurtla Twilight appeared for Andrew Aspital at about the same time as it sported in the Midland’s for Peter Clubb. Both have been shown at the National and it is generally agreed that they are identical sports. Gurtla Twilight has long been regarded as one of the best show poms so it remains to be seen whether this sport will live up to expectations. It is easy to grow and has produced very consistent blooms though there is evidence that both sports are trying to sport white with the very very occasional appearance of a white flower on a plant! Like Gurtla, Jon’s Twilight will grow up to 1.2 m and is best stopped and pinched out a few times up until the 2nd week July at the latest to produce a very bushy plant with numerous flowers to help keep the size down.
