Group: Herbaceous Hybrid
Bloom period: Early Season
Bloom week: 2 & 3
Flower form: Double
Height: Medium
USDA zone: 3 to 7
Item number: 2866


Full double form on mature plants; one flower per stem, fragrant. Petal color is in shades of apricot, darker at opening and in the depths of the flower, the color paling where exposed to sunlight. Guard petals are rounded and cupped surrounding inner petals which encircle a narrow collar of stamens, which in turn surrounds the outer petals of the inner flower, leading to wanted fullness in the mature flower. A good grower, strong stems are slightly spreading, green leaflets hold up better than the average of herbaceous hybrids in later summer, showing moderate resistance to leaf spot fungi and has been found quite resistant to mildew. The plant quickly matures into a large clump, making an admirable presentation when in flower.
