Rick's Pick

(Zoe Allegra x Tet. Out of the Blue) Sev. 5" fl. 24" sc. M 20 buds. Good rust resistance. Fertile both ways and cold hardy. As the name implies, my friend and fellow hybridizer, Richard Taylor-Yates, fell in love with this flower and asked to name it. Rick's Pick has a pale yellow self. At the center of the flower is a deep green throat that moves out, merging with a complex colored pattern eye. The color and pattern of the eye varies greatly from turquoise, violet and slate, with a final burgundy band. The eye is often smeared, metallic or muted, which is not surprising considering the parentage of Zoe Allegra and Tet. Out of the Blue. The pattern eye continues around the petal edges as a matching wire edge.
