2012 Introductions . . . Final Part 9

The weather has moderated some here and it is more like the beginning of fall with a few warmer days thrown in. I have started transplanting the seedling peat pots into the 1 gallon pots. I can oly work until about 10:30 in the greenhouse because then the sun is out and the temperature has climbed.

2012 Introduction No. 8 Final (Left click for a larger image) 

All images I have shown you so far have been taken outside in the field. For Introduction No. 9, I thought I would show you images from both the greenhouse and the field. The pattern is exactly the same, the "relief" sculpting is still evident, the biggest difference is in the color. Yes, in the second image, the flower does have sepals, they are just recurved.

28” EM SEv Re EMO Ext 5½”. 4-way branching, 18 buds. Petals 3½”, sepals 2”.
    This flower has the “relief” form of sculpting and is a pale peach with a rosy eye. A lemon-lime throat and a heavily ruffled rosy edge with a gold line provides the finishing touches. Opens like this every morning. Very heavy substance which holds well in the sun or rain. Second set of scapes emerge before first set is done blooming. Fertile.

  1. Congratulations for this real beauty. I like it a lot with carved petals and sweet colors.
    Bravo !

  2. Another great one Lee; your 2012 intros are the best you have ever done in my estimation. Wonder what you will come up with in the future to top these?
