*NATALIE ANTOINETTE (Stamile,P.) TET 2153-J
(Shantih X Walking In Beauty) 27” MRe. Ev. emo.
vfr. 7” x 4¼” x 2½”. 4-way
branching. (2 laterals + terminal “Y”) 35-40 buds.
This is simply the largest gold-edged rose pink that
I have ever seen. First blooms can be 8” across with 4¾” petals.
Of the pink flowers I grow, and am familiar with only JUDY FARQUHAR and
THE TERMINATOR are larger and JUDY FARQUHAR is a pastel peach pink and
THE TERMINATOR is a copper rose.
Flowers of NATALIE ANTOINETTE are flat and have
extraordinary substance for a flower so large. A flower so large has to
have a commensurate plant under it and NATALIE ANTOINETTE has a very
strong plant with excellent plant habit, plant balance and good
branching and bud count.
An outstanding parent for very large gold edged pinks. Fertile both ways.
