  • Posted by jmorth (central Illinois) on Nov 3, 2013 6:49 PM concerning plant:
    Autumn flowering group that has a lot of blended colors and 'variation' (color changes w/ maturity).
    DaffSeek describes the group thusly -'Fl. about 8 to 15 per stem, sometimes up 25-30; 1 to1 ¾- 2 inches wide; color ranges from white through dark yellow, to in some cases, approaching orange, in the perianth. Cups are white, yellow or orange-red, in some cases quite intense; height varies from full size to approaching miniatures; cup sometimes frilled along edges, in some cases heavily so; the diversity of fragrances is remarkable, due in large part to the diversity of scent among the otherwise often similar-looking bicolored wild forms of the coastal Mediterranean, which are a part of their ancestry.' (11-3-13).
    Cultivar has been used in breeding programs in California this century, 10 times as seed parent and 3 times as pollen parent. List of descendants may be accessed through the ADS DaffSeek site at http://daffseek.org/query/Desc...
