I have had problems with Pinks that tend to be not very hardy in 
colder climates and have been working on this. the best that I have 
done so far is "Eramosa Miss" a pink/apricot BB that is very haardy 
and does well in the winters of Ottawa, Canada. Others that I note as 
being extra hardy in cold that I would suggest are, Celebration Song, 
Master Gardener, and Wench. while none of these are pure pink, they 
are lycopene recessives. The dark color of the falls with Wench and 
Celebration song should be controlled by a dominant gene, so some 
offspring from first generation should be pure pink, and definatly 
with the second generation. These last two have very nice pink of 
standards and should produce nice children.
