PINK VALENTINE (Mitsch/Havens) 1986 2W-WPP. LM. 18" (Precedent x Eclat) G13/23. One of the best of the many selections from this cross, Pink Valentine combines the special beauty of deep pink coloration and a smooth white perianth with a very appealing style all its own.
The somewhat flat cup is white with a wide ruffled border of bright pink.
Tall strong stems combine the grace and elegance of the flower with ability in the garden and for arrangements.
SIOUX (Mitsch) 2Y-R. EM. 18"(P53/1 x Flaming Meteor) B45/26. Broad, deep golden yellow perianth with a good sized, well formed, deep orange red, neavily frilled crown. Vigorous grower.
OCCASIONALLY (Mitsch) 1986 1W-Y. M. 18" (Wahkeena x ((Silver Dale x Kancenjunga) x Preamble)) H122/4.
The beautiful clean color of the broad pointed white perianth and lemon yellow trumpet combines with a silken texture and classical trumpet form to bring notice from Phil Phillips when he was visiting, with the comment this would be a good addition to the bicolor trumpets currently being shown. A beautiful flower.
MOONFLIGHT (Mitsch) 1979 4Y-Y. L. 20" (Gay Time x Daydream) G69/6. A large bloom with pale soft lemon outer segments, with the center of similar shade, interspersed with lemon gold petaloids.
A very lovely flower for the garden and great for arrangements.
Fewer petals than many of the doubles, but because of their width and form, they make an appealing bloom.
