Yes, Linda, it is a big flower -- 7 - 8
inches across at the falls. Can't send you a top-down photo, though.
High winds overnight broke one of the falls. Just average substance,
therefore. The cross is 'Again and Again' X 'Autumn Nectar'(Lili Marlene x
Cherry Glen). Both parents are rebloomers, and both are better-looking
than this particular progeny. I registered 'Autumn Nectar' this
year. It has heavy substance. Photo attached. --

Looks like it has nice big flowers and ruffles - what's it look like
Is it an optical illusion or does it have a lighter band around
Just curious - what's the pedigree?
After making a few
attempted rebloom crosses, I'm getting a better
appreciation for how
difficult it can be to get something that reblooms
at all (at least here in
the 'vale'), much less a nice one.
> Here's one blooming today for the
first time -- and that's about all that can be said for it, except that it has a
nice stalk. Needs to be crossed with something that has flaring falls. --
