Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said:ACCIDENTAL TOURIST
04 M 31 SE
Complex Seedling involving RUFFLED DUDE and Munson Eyes X Tet. TRAHLYTA
The second introduction from Tet. TRAHLYTA and a distinctive counterpoint to GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM. This bohemian and peculiar affair is a complex blending of rose and frosty lilac. The color bleeds and fades along a large starburst watermark pattern in soft rose violets.These large 8" simple and triangular flowers are flat and slightly flaring with reflexed sepals. While this first generation selection inherits the modest 2 to 3-way branching of it’s pollen parent, the next generation has vastly improved. ACCIDENTAL TOURIST is very fertile either way and is producing a remarkable bevy of seedlings in a kaleidoscope of colors and patterns.
