I should have started this thread a while ago, but I guess it is better late than never. This will showcase what Rick & Roger have blooming in their garden in Catheys Valley CA that is not their own work. I will post that in the 2016 introduction thread.

This is the lesser known sister to Wings of Peace, introduced 1 year earlier. I wonder what made them different enough to introduce both? Wings Of Peace is always the first to bloom in my garden...by a full week usually.

Wings of Peace has alot more ruffles, but thats about it. It is interesting why they introduced them so close to each other. You would think that one would take away sales from the other since they are so similar.

That's what I was thinking. The only other major difference is bloom season. Free Space is mid-late (and 35") and Wings Off Peace is early-mid (and 38"), although for me it blooms very early. WOP had a slight scent and FS has none. Still they are so similar...I wonder what their thinking was?
