Lonesome Diva

(April LaQuinta x Lilly King) (Diana Culbertson x Lady Alvatine). Dor. to Sev. 7" fl. 24" sc. M 20 buds. Excellent to good rust resistance. Fertile both ways. Plants go completely dormant in cold winters, and are heavy rebloomers, blooming for 4 months in Florida. I like large, showy flowers, and the blooms of Lonesome Diva are massive! Not only are the blooms so large, the petals are also extremely wide and deeply ruffled, with the deep scalloped ruffling going nearly to the midrib. The ruffling is often deeply folded and crimped with a gold to chartreuse edge. The self color is a coral to mango pink. Add to this that this is another of this year's dormant introductions that are strong vigorous growers in Florida. The flowers of Lonesome Diva are so huge and voluptuous, they create a grand presence in the garden that stops visitors in their tracks.
