(Stamile,P.) TET 6442-A (Rose Fever x Shimmering Elegance) 24 ERe. Dor.
fr. ext. EMO. 6 x 3¼ x 2¼. 3 - 4 way
branching (3 way + terminal y or 4 way). 20 - 25 buds. This
cross of ROSE FEVER by SHIMMERING ELEGANCE was perhaps one of the best
crosses I have ever made. There were more keepers, percentage wise,
than any other cross I can recall. The two best are DARLINGTON COUNTY
and its sib, ROSE VISION, a future introduction. DARLINGTON COUNTY
is one of the clearest rose pinks with a round Nile green throat.
Flowers have very heavy substance from both parents and are stylishly flat
and bordered by a deep fluted ruffling edge in gold. The form is
so beautiful on this flower that you think you are looking at a 4 ½
or 5 flower forgetting this is a full 6 bloom. A magnificent addition
to the rose pink color class. For the hybridizer this is a dormant
that does exceptionally well both North and South and is a very easy parent
