Great Goodness Gracious has been a great breeder for me. The cross with Pat Stamile's Great White produced the most eye-blinding gold flower in my seedling bed. The seedling is Dormant, and vigorous. I may put a name on this one. I wish I could add pics of it to this post.

An Excellent garden flower well presented on tall scapes, branched to the hilt, evergreen foliage does its typical burn mushy look here in Upper East Tennessee, Spring foliage emerges with robust vigor.
