Year Introduced: 1990
Produces masses of medium sized single flowers over a long period. Rarely needs pinching out - if you do this just a few times when it is young. Easy to grow, one of the all-time great cultivars and instantly recognisable for its cheerful upward facing flowers. Wonderful for bedding and garden containers, also makes a good standard.
Regarding the capitalisation of the prefix, Henk says:
“Until 2001, all my cultivars bore the name prefix WALZ. WALZ is an acronym composed of the first letters of the surnames of the grandparents of my children. It must therefore use all capital letters and be written together.”
Tube: Short, white with faint pink lines.
Sepals: White above, underside light rose pink, tipped with green.
Corolla: Bold rose pink
Parentage: Toos x Prince Syray.
