Description:

This flower is a symbol of everything I've ever hoped my hybridizing efforts would become. There's no way I can describe the feelings that overcame me when seeing it get into gear as a seedling, more beautiful not only with each bloom... but with every year since.  It's been downright painful, the wait to have enough to offer it to others... but FINALLY, after showing it off for so long... it's HERE!!!  Indeed, the choice I made to ditch my "real career" for this vocation has always been deeply personal... but now you know, it was for one thing:  QUALITY OF LIFE.

Deep, rich blooms of total pomp and circumstance are just awesome with this new cultivar.  First scapes are divine, but the quickly recurrent second set are substantially taller... and more regal in nature than of any I've seen.  Branches and buds abound, and awesome plant structure has strength to spare in supporting these incredible blooms en mass.  The clarity of saturation is beyond reason, and the watermark the best I've produced from years of working with Munson's gorgeous beginnings... complete with a fresh green throat to overlay it with.  The photo of the scape shows a bad angle on the 4-6 way branching, but is of a lined single fan... growing like all my others, in the middle of a horse pasture in red clay (not a greenhouse, or even under shade cloth).  What do you think you can expect in a real garden, like your own?

Indeed, I love this plant... and am very confident, that you will too!
