Year Introduced: 1958
An uncommon oldie that's absolutely worth growing for a beautiful display in containers or bedding.
Truly drooly, but may need some support and also benefits from a little cosseting over winter.
(Temporary photo, untypical very late season blooms.)
Tube: White 155C, faint green stripe, short.
Sepals: White 155C above, white N155D and pink 56C below, yellow green recurved tip. Horizontal to fully up, broad, creped texture, recurved with a slight twist.
Corolla: Light pink 65B, paler edge, veins and strong basal flush of pink 68C, 3/4 flared. Fully double, petals of different sizes, incurved and rolled to resemble an old-fashioned quartered rose.
