I just want to say here how much I am enjoying KA's Cloud this year! She has been absolutely perfect and worth every cent I paid for that tiny rooted cutting from Corralitos. She produces about 3 giant flowers a week for me, and they are each perfectly beautifiul with the tinges of lavender, pink and yellow on the white.
Oh yes, I think that could fit into the pastel weddings very nicely! I might give it a try but not sure I want to pay big intro bucks for it...I presume being a "Mingus" it has been around for a while?
Noni, I'm hopefully going to visit Kristine's farm on one of my fall/winter visits home this year and can't wait to talk to her about KA. I'm hoping she will sell tubers next year, she was intimating on social media she might, so wanted to see if I could buy some from her.
She posts seedlings sometimes and she really has some awesome looking stuff, I told her if she needs to trial in PA, I'm in! Hehe.
Kim I hopefully can buy some more Peaches n Cream from you this year, all my tubers bit the dust this year (we had crazy spring rains and a lot of things rotted that were not further along) and of course it's like the talk of the farmer florist town this year. I keep thinking I HAD FIVE!!!! I keep hoping one will crop up, in the area I planted there may be one plant but so far I don't think so.
Honnet had posted Summer Rain at the beginning of the thread, but the colors were a strong peach-pink in his image. Here's my early image, with some still-strong colors but not as intense.
I am getting more creamy blended colors in full sun right now, with a nice full form. I'll try for a picture next week to show the difference. The coloration (of this whole thread) is not my cup of tea, but still very glad I have the chance to grow and enjoy Summer Rain this season.
When judges see Carmen Lotus in the novelty closed center class they cringe as it looks like a waterlily to them. It is larger than most WLs and the pointed tips seem to be the only reason it is in novelty. I actually started to move it to the waterlily class and had to be told to put it back into NX some years ago.
We like to place a sign on our porch that says: We are in the garden. Really, we are always in the garden.
