Year Introduced: 1974
A jewel indeed, from one of the UK's great hybridizers. Starts to flower early and continues to do so very freely. Naturally good bushy growth, easy and reliable, well suited to container and bedding purposes. Recommended.
Although this photo is of an early, (and slightly immature) flower, more typical blooms have extra petaloids in the corolla.
Tube: Rose, darker stripes, peg top shape.
Sepals: Neyron rose paling through pink to green tip, fully up.
Corolla: Wisteria blue, rose pink veining towards paler pink petal base, 1/4 flared. Smooth, overlapping petals.
Parentage: Cloverdale x Lady Isobel Barnett.
