This was my first year growing 'Tinkerbell,' and I'm in love with her! Blooms are slightly trumpet-shaped, with a ruffled picoteed edge. Color is more pink than peach, to my relief, as I'm not a fan of peachy tones. Miniature, so stems and blooms are smaller than some varieties. No staking needed, even with 6 to 8 blooms per stem! I put 3 bulbs in a pot and got blooms for weeks. Highly recommended. I got mine from ADR Bulbs.
