Flowers so heavy substanced that they are very long lasting. One of the first to bloom, the last to finish & a great favorite with visitors all season long. Proving a good parent. HM'61.

  • I grow both of these. Ice 'N' Lime("InL") is similar to Pinnacle ("P"), P being introduced 9 years earlier by Jean Stevens. My observations conclude that on InL the falls are wider, not as long and the beard is thicker and yellow all the way to the tip. P's falls are narrower, longer, and the beard narrows at the tip and turns white while the inside has more of a reddish tint to it. -- WikiGuest - 31 Oct 2018
