LITTLE DUNKIN (Stamile G.) DIP 17”, 2.5”, SEV, EM re emo, 4 way branching, 30 buds, low arching foliage
LITTLE DUNKIN is not named
after the coffee, but rather a long term customer, who is particularly
fond of the miniatures, and has been coming to the garden the past
couple of years and asking about DUNK. At first we could not
place which one he was referring to but eventually realized he wanted
the one where the cross numbers on the tag had come off so I put D –
UNK. The D was for diploid and the unk was for
unknown. So for our dear friend Ross Hunter of
Louisiana – we introduce LITTLE DUNKIN.
This is an amazing little 95% double with raspberry red petals with
veining, light pink to white edges with a deep purple band around the
watermarked eye. The first photo is from early March when the
temps were in the 50’ and I added it so as to see the pattern. By
June there is so much white popcorn doubling that the pattern is
hidden. Absolutely charming.
