Best Cut® 'Monsieur Jules Elie'
Originator: (Crousse, 1888)
Group: Lactiflora
Bloom period: Late Midseason
Bloom week: 5
Flower form: Bomb
Height: Tall
USDA zone: 2 to 8
Item number: 1987

Details:

Bomb double; large to very large, opens in shades of medium pink, petal tips silvered, very good substance. Notably, when protected from wind or in the vase the mildly fragrant flower may grow to very large size. Good plant habit, vigorous, prolific and reliable bloom, produces abundant color on a spreading, tall bush. Much appreciated for its vigor and flower size. Long stems sag with rain in the opened flower, the presentation benefited by support; very worth the trouble, outstanding display in the landscape, great for cutting. Has long been a staple of the florist trade.
