HVH: "Crème de la Crème' is a new, very special HVH seedling that blooms with 7-9" brown, blue, and white ruffly single flowers with a red eye and maroon bleed that varies from season to season. The bush is beautiful, upright, and loaded with blooms. It is a slow grower and will stay compact. The blooms are always show quality, with beautiful form, markings, and colors. 'Crème de la Crème' is the offspring of Rainbow Christie and Strobe. Charles Black considers this seedling one of his most special hybrids, and for several years refused to sell it. He released five of these hybrids in 2005, and is releasing five more in 2008."
