The name, Exquisite One, sums up the aspect of this cultivar from New Zealand well. It looks exquisite. Exquisite One was hybridized by Peter Ramsey in 1993, registered in 2005, and won an Award of Merit in New Zealand a year earlier. The flower form as a whole is rounded and measures just over three inches with a pleasing cup to petal ratio. I would like to try and force this one, but its accessibility is questionable as it dwells on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
