Wrennetta Powell

[(Masked Marauder x Strawberries and Chocolate) x Tet. Peppermint Delight] x (Carol Todd) Sev. 7-8" fl. 36" sc. M 35-40 buds. Average rust resistance and fertile both ways. These giant sized flowers are presented on very tall scapes that are wonderfully branched, carrying many, many blooms. The flowers are a light burgundy with a huge, very dark eye and matching picotee. The picotee edge is surrounded by a second gold edge. Ellis Powell, the wonderful gentlemen and friend who ran the CENLA meeting, visited our garden shortly after his wife passed away. He said that he would like to have a flower named for her, and he wanted it to be a flower of mine. I asked him to pick out his favorite, and he chose this flower to be named for his wife, Wrenetta. A marvelous flower and a tribute to an old friend and his wife.
