Year Introduced: 1971
Abundant small to medium sized flowers provide a truly eye-catching display, in gorgeous colours. Named for the famous and historic Preston Guild, held only once every 20 years. As far as we're concerned any year is a good one to grow this graceful beauty.
Avoid full sun, which bleaches the blue, and makes the white parts pink.
Tube: White with tinge of green.
Sepals: White with apple green tips, curled prettily almost back to the tube when mature, often with a slight twist.
Corolla: Violet blue, darker edges, paler at base, little or no flare.
Foliage: Narrow mid green leaves.
Parentage: Dorothea Flower x Hawkshead.
