Pennsylvania Bucktails (2002)

PENNSYLVANIA BUCKTAILS (Jesberger 2002)

(Driving Me Wild X Wisest of Wizards)

Tetraploid, 4.75” flower, 25”scape, four to five way branching, 21-26 buds, mid season bloom, semi-evergreen to dormant) I know it doesn’t have the really fancy face everyone seems to want, but Northern gardeners will appreciate this one anyway as it loves to grow and is extremely hardy. Put up three scapes as a first year double-fan seedling in 2001, and then put up a rebloom scape toward the end of July 2001! Large, vigorous dark green foliage, very good increase. Early morning opener and opens wide even on cool northern mornings. Color is a soft, buff peach pink with white midribs and a soft burgundy eye. Yellow green throat, ruffled metallic gold edge, and moderately diamond dusted. Extremely fertile both ways. Named in honor of a famous Civil War Regiment from north-western Pennsylvania commanded by General Thomas L. Kane.

I am getting reports from some Northern hybridizers that Pennsylvania Bucktails is giving them very vigorous seedlings.
