|* 'Royal Fringe'
(Fortune’s Dearest x Forbidden Fantasy) (Mort Morss) Sev. 6” fl. 27”
sc. M 20 buds. In the beginning, there were teeth. I was sure
that, with time and persistence, we could turn the individual teeth
into a white fringe edge. Royal Fringe has done just that. These clear
lavender to purple flowers have a lighter watermark and a deep green
center. The petal edges are surrounded by a continuous white filagree
fringed edge. The white fringe edge forms an ornate and dramatic
contrast to the purple self. Royal Fringe has been an important
breeder for red and purple flowers with dramatic white fringes.
