*EVA LYNN CUPCHIK -- (Forbidden Desires x Clothed in Glory) Sev. 6” fl., 27” sc. M. 25-30 buds.  ‘Forbidden Desires’ has been one of my favorite purples, and ‘Eva Lynn Cupchik’ clearly has taken its famous parents to new heights.  The blooms have the rich, saturated purple color of ‘Forbidden Desires’ on a wider petalled flower, with the heavier gold edge from ‘Clothed in Glory’.  The flowers also have a large chalky watermark and a deep green throat.  These are large flowers  with a very commanding presence. Named for my friends’ daughter, an outgoing young lady whose energy, vivacious personality and intensity are mirrored in this flower.
