SUPREME EMPIRE (Mitsch) 1990 2W-P. M. 20"(Sentinel x Eclat) KK15/1. A most unusual and spectacular flower, the large fluted corona is the deepest red pink and would lay back nearly flat against the perianth except for the fact that the perianth is reflexed at a 45 degree angle.
The huge very rounded broad perianth segments are perfectly formed with heavy substance and pure clean white.
In fact the primary impression is the entire flower possesses very heavy substance along with bright color. A beautiful addition to the unusual. each net.
SUAVE (Throckmorton) 1976 3Y-Y. L. 22" (Aircastle x Irish Coffee) T66/12/1. Opens with a wide white perianth.
The tailored cup is shaded with grayish-lavender and pearl with buff rim. As it ages, the whole flower becomes soft yellow.
SNOW FRILLS (Mitsch) 1978 2YW-W. M. 20" (Rushlight x Daydream) F84/1. While we have raised many seedlings from Daydream, it is difficult to get one that is either better or distinctive from it.
Combining some of the good qualities of both parents, this is a flower of excellent form, being a soft light lemon yellow throughout, the long, heavily frilled crown fading out to almost pure white, without the slight lemon or gold rim usually found in most other reverse bicolors.
It also develops a nice white halo on the very flat smooth perianth. Flowers stand at about a 90 ш angle from the strong upright stems. A beautiful garden flower that should prove a winner on the show bench.
TROPIC ISLE (Mitsch) 1976 4W-P. M. 18" (Pink Chiffon x Accent) E21/3. Of the many pink doubles we have raised, we think this among the best that has flowered thus far.
A double row of white perianth segments with a very full center of salmon pink and ivory white petaloids.
Strong stems and short neck. In common with many of its class, if it opens in cold wet weather, some blooms may be green on one side.
