(Flying Trapeze X Webster's Aggie) 7"/38"--La,Dor, Tet 20 buds,4 branches
Yellow UFo with variable red broken overlay. A hard dormant that goes down early. Fertile both ways. Will proliferate. I see a few blooms<5%) each year that are solid color, but even those are appealing because of the twisting of the petals. It was pure luck to get this result, but I am thrilled to see its late garden display. Very nice wide-spaced branching. The colors will have different patterns on different days-see below.
The broken color trait may pass on to its seedlings. A customer sent me the image below left of a seedling that so far has shown consistent color breaks. Click it for a larger view. The seedling to the right is a selfed cross.
All segments will twist, spatulate and cascade depending on the day. Truly nothing else is like it out there. It has the plant habit to go with a truly unique bloom,with the bonus of extending the season with something you can't wait to see each day......$150/DF---$100/SF
