Hello, Barb,

Anna Belle Babson is a seedling of Beverly Sills, so there are similarities, but there are also differences.  A picture would help.  I have grown both though I don’t have either now, and the picture I have of ABB, I am not sure is my own. 

Anna Bell Babson is a slightly deeper pink than Beverly Sills.  In my garden, had larger blossoms with wider, more open form.  It was also a better grower, though not so floriferous.  Beverly Sills bloomed out.

Hi, all,


I have this wonderful pink clump that blooms every year. The person I got it from said it was Beverly Sills, but one of my friends who saw it is equally adamant that it is Anna Belle Babson.


Can anyone tell me what might be the subtle differences between the two so I can tell them apart?  It is my only clump so I'm not sure what I have.


Thanks!                 -- Barb
