PENNY PINSLEY is my favourite medium-sized bloom. The blossom is trim and terrific and appears to never have a tepal out of place. Singles are rare and it reblooms. It shows resistance to rust.
Here, it begins flowering from late in the second month to the beginning of the third month of spring. It is easily both pod and pollen fertile. It is a semi-evergreen and stops growing in the colder months but does not die back.

Have you seen a Pygmy Hippopotamus?
