Yes. I call that color peach but Margaret calls it a blend.

I asked my seeds for peach blooms and they delivered! 4 good ones this year. This is the largest constantly blooming 6" on an unmanicured plant.

Sold! I guess that will be available in 2-3 weeks?

I already virus tested it (negative) and will get as many cuttings from it next spring to bump up its numbers. I'll take a chance that it will be just as good next year.

Peaches-N-Cream s an excellent cut flower here and popular with the florists. However, as with most varieties I grow, after blooming for about 3 months the blooms have dropped a size so the Peaches-N-Cream become small min. blooms instead of larger (almost BB) blooms on earlier flushes. I am looking for a larger version of Peaches-N-cream and am wondering about Hollyhill Orange Ice. To my eyes, the online photos look very similar so I would appreciate any comparison from growers who have grown both varieties or any other,recommendations.

There's a variety called 'Peaches' that I've listed on DA as 'Peaches (FD)' that looks rather like a bigger, messier PNC, but I've not grown any of them.

Thanks Amanda. The two suppliers listed on DA show a very different (yellow and red, not orange and white) color combination than Peaches-N-Cream and neither vendor's photo resembles the other's. Some of the Dutch resellers have a variety that they sell as "Peaches" but I think must be "Peaches-N-Cream". I don't envy you going down the "Peaches Pit" for DA, there seems to be 'some' confusion among vendors. Smiling

Edit:
I see I was looking at Peaches(ID) on DA and not Peaches(FD). What a mess.

Indeed! Yes, I think the 'Peaches (ID)' is a sport of 'Peaches and Cream' that had lost the white tips. Get it? Ugh!
I used to think the 'Peaches (FD)' was the Dutch import name for 'Peaches N Cream' but the form really seems looser and the white is more distinct.

I have seen the one with red listed as Peaches AND Cream and the pink and white one Peaches N Cream. Don't know how accurate those names are.

Steve, I wonder if Linda's Esther would work. There are some good pictures on "Evelyn's Garden" website.

Here's 'Peaches' FD. Different variety? Dunno. Seems like the petals are longer maybe.

Thanks Jane, that looks like one I need to trial. Slightly larger than Peaches-N-Cream and looks like she could be cajoled into becoming a waterlily in the right climate. I'll try to catch Evelyn's sale March 1.

Maybe. Or maybe grown in a different climate?

I have really limited knowledge of proper dahlia form, but PNC seems to always look really tight and regular and this one not so much.
