'Easter Egg' was a featured
Plant of the Day for April 28, 2022.
  • Posted by adknative (Eagle Bay, New York - Zone 3b) on Jan 16, 2022 12:47 PM concerning plant:
    Easter Egg looks something like early traditions of pysanky (elaborate hand-painted Ukranian eggs), without the extreme detail - perhaps the reason for its name. I've grown 'Easter Egg' in the gardens for two years, and while it has bloomed very well for being so new, I do believe it is still becoming established and will be showier once it has another season or two.

    That said, in zone 3 gardening, Easter Egg has had no rust, no disease, and no other problems. It's fragrant and the flowers are nearly the size of my open hand. It matches perfectly with its description: "cream self with a green throat and pattern lavender violet eye and matching picotee and gold edge." Even though its blooms are consistent every time, I still find myself looking twice to see that layered colour on the tightly ruffled edge. It's beautiful.
