Hybridized in Grain Valley, Missouri by the late Jerry Mix, one of the most enthusiastic boosters of Region 11 (Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma.) When Jerry passed away, our Region created an annual memorial award in his name for the individual who best exemplifies the positive contributions of our dear departed friend Jerry.

Glitter Gal grows well for me. It is listed as a late season bloomer and I find that to be true in my garden. It has increased quite well and blooms reliably after a somewhat slow start. Its first year it struggled, but it has now improved quite nicely and is doing very well. I have set several pods on this one, and its pollen is also fertile.
