The red pigment is on the back of the petals.and the orange is on the front. Noni's seedlings have this trait too. I really like the contrast.

It makes for great photography. Which is also a trait that makes for a good florist flower that no one talks about. I think the most photographed flower is the one the florist sells. Incredibly important for their business image.

LeeAnn, did you give her a name yet, and will you be selling tubers this year?

It's name is Coseytown Bounty. Named.after one of my favorite varieties of local peaches. I sold some this year and will have lots for my next sale.

You are getting a great collection of peach seedlings, LeeAnn. I think Peach will be a popular color with brides/florists for years to come. For as long as I can remember it has been one of the top 3 colors for weddings.

I'm hearing good responses about Bounty. It's not a show flower by any means but it's uber productive and I think growers will be elated with the tubers.

Ohhh, if we are posting seedlings ... Here is a Hy Patti seedling blooming again. First bloom this year in the middle of a week in the 90's and high humidy. 😁



LeeAnn, this is the seedling I meant to ask about. Is she named?

Is anyone aware of a 4-6" FD (or ID) in the color of Camano Cloud? I have seen a few SC forms with similar color but no Formal Decoratives (or as my broker would say "the round ones"). My photo is a little dark.

This is Coseytown Neon Flash. It was the first to bloom. 8 weeks after tuber planting. It will be available in 2022.

Neon Flash this year. I'm letting it go to seed now, but the plant is bananas.

I should not say this as it may cause a frenzy among cut flower growers, but Camano Cloud is very similar in color to Cafe au Lait.

Yes, Ted, that statement borders on blasphemy. Smiling Cafe au Lait doesn't really have a color because it is not stable. Most of the blooms, when grown at summer temperatures, are a 'dirty' pink color with occasional light tan blooms (the most desirable) or even white blooms (more rare). Camano Cloud blooms are very light, creamy peach with an undertone of orange.
Cafe au Lait is an aggravating bloom to look at - staring at it for any length will give you a headache. Luckily the shelf life is so short you don't have to look at it for long. Camano Cloud is a relaxing, almost zen-like color, The color of a sweet memory.

Camano Cloud: My philosophy professor said, "You have fallen in love with a dream."
Camano Cloud is more than just a pretty flower and if it made few easy keeping tubers it would be grown by everyone. I love it's color.

I think Camano Cloud is much lighter in color and more like Cafe' au lait.
