*RACING WITH DESTINY -- (John Peat x Ne Quitte Pas) Sev. 6” fl., 28” sc. M. 25-30 buds.  These flowers are a soft lavender pink.  The petal edges carry a heavy gold looping and ruffling.  The flowers also have a large lighter chalky watermark and a green throat.  The blooms on ‘Racing with Destiny’ are quite different in that there is a bronze to golden overlay to the flower, which is most evident in the watermark area.  Thus, the watermark appears as a chalky pink with gold to tangerine  highlights.  The golden highlights blend into the bright gold edging. The flowers are also large and slightly recurved. This gilded overlay in the watermark makes these flowers stand out among a field of lavender pinks.
