(Pierce G.) TET 9316 [(Carefree Sunset x White Base) x (Sdlg x
Picture in Picture)] 39” 6.5” flower, EV emo EMre, 6-way
branching with 35 buds. Arching Foliage. Fragrant.
I absolutely adore this flower. Of course that’s the first thing
that comes to mind about every introduction, especially when we
introduce only 30 from some 300+ A+ keepers every season. The
last thing I ever need to do is have fillers, it’s the other way
around, and just knowing you have selected things like Cool Runnings
makes it easier to toss the rest. Cool Runnings looks exactly
like the picture from first flower to last. This bloom is nothing
short of impressive, and especially gorgeous as the heat rises the
green from the throat is pulled out onto the very large white
watermark. I have a whole line in different colors from Cool
Runnings, and as I look at them I remember the Munson’s watermarks I
loved so much back in the 80’s and think Bill would absolutely love
this flower. First blooms are 7” across and she goes and goes
like the energizer bunny.
Not a day goes by without her getting pollen! I hope you’ll love
Cool Runnings as much as I have enjoyed growing her.
Unique. Fertile both ways. Very Limited.
