|QUEEN OF THE
GARDEN -- (Darla Anita x Gary Colby) Sev.
7-8” fl. 35” sc. M 25 buds. Huge cream yellow flowers with a pink
to coral blush and a deep green throat. Every now and then a real
break occurs in terms of not only the flower, but the overall plant
that changes your entire program. So it was with Queen of the
Garden. Its huge size and incredible ruffling allowed me to move
forward in my “huge, fancy face” lines. The ruffling on these
flowers stack on top of each other, with ruffling on top of ruffling,
leading to huge billowing piles of ruffles. One of our goals as
we push past the 8” flower is to put them on tall, husky, well branched
scapes. With 35” scapes with 3 laterals plus a terminal Y, Queen
of the Garden became the primary breeding plant for my lavenders and
pinks. Easily fertile both ways.
