From Schreiner's catalog, 2016: BUT DARLING (Schreiner 2016) ML. 46”. $60.00. But Darling’s conspicuous midribs are seeming reflections of the deep rich violet falls. This captivating bitone’s pale, austere apricot standards help lend the plush falls an air of sensuality. Uncontrolled ruffling, and a ¼” lavender periphery on the falls, are twin delights. This extremely tall sentinel features great substance, good branching, and has shown us as many as three simultaneous blossoms in our test seedling beds. Seedling A287-1.
