Rhubarb Pie
*Rhubarb Pie

*RHUBARB PIE (Stamile,P.) TET 4171-E (Cerise Masterpiece x Roses And Gold) 30” ERe. emo. no fr. Ev. 6 ½” x 3 ¾” x 2 ½”. 5-way branching (3 laterals + terminal Y). 25-30 buds.  This is one neat flower. It is always admired in the garden but no two flowers are quite alike even though all are beautiful. It is not the color that varies but rather the form of the flower. Sometimes the flowers display elaborate “angel wings” along with normal flutes and ruffles. At other times the flowers display “pillowing” where the edge is raised off the surface of the flower before it is edged in white.

    The flowers are a deep raspberry. Those who might remember rhubarb know the color I am referring to. Outside the chartreuse throat is a blue rose halo. There are also occasional white sharks teeth and sometimes the edging is displayed in both white and gold. In short, this flower has it all – just do not expect the form to be consistent. A good breeder. Fertile both ways.
