  • Don Mylin said:This plant was by Jan Noyes in 2001. It was one she named before she turned the nursery over to me. I have no idea who Glen Morrie might be, and she never said. It seemed like an average plant to me and at some time I quit propagating it. That is about all I know.
  • EU 48565 ('belsemred1'PBR) (plant patent in EU and US)

  • Gisela Volkner said:Named after my grandchild Jannik.
    Beatrix said when she saw the seedling that this is a wonder, because the seedling forms cristate, double head, triple head. Sometimes an offset makes stripes, sometimes it is half only colored.

  • From Jeanette at Plant Haven: Amethyst does not fit the SUPERSEMP series so has been moved and is named Lavender Ice (avail from Pacific Plug & Liner and Quality Cuttings).
  • Here is a little history on 'Moon Maiden', from Don Mylin:
    I cannot tell you the seed parent for Moon Maiden, however I have used 'Korspel Sport' a few years back to generate a series of plants with thicker leaves which is what I was after. One of the earlier ones was 'Emerald City'. Now I have several larger plants with the thickness but green. Moon Maiden was the first one with decent color. When it starts to grow in the spring it looks like it is going to be yellowish ivory but as time passes it gets darker and darker. It made me think of the light and dark sides of the moon. From there it was a leap to an old Duke Ellington tune- 'Moon Maiden'
