*CHERRYSTONE (Stamile,P.,1999) TET T-4161
[(Raspberry Candy x Pirates Patch) x Creative Edge] 27” EMRe. Ev. fr.
EMO. 5” x 2 5/8” x 2”. 3 - 4 way branching. 25 buds.
A brand new color in the eyed and edged family, CHERRYSTONE is rose
pink with a red eye and edge. On the outside of the red edge there
is often a gold wire. The comparison between CHERRYSTONE and STRAWBERRY
FIELDS FOREVER is bound to be made. CHERRYSTONE is a
deeper color and more rose pink than pink. The edge is not as braided
as STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER. CHERRYSTONE is also very
wide, full and round. Both are outstanding and very different.
CHERRYSTONE has been used to get double eyes and double edges and to increase
the palette of colors in the eyes and edges. I can hardly wait for
this year’s seedling crop from CHERRYSTONE to bloom. A great garden
flower and with its very easy pod fertility, a friend to the hybridizer
as well. Easily fertile both ways….…….$125.00
