*PEACOCK FEATHERS


*PEACOCK  FEATHERS (Stamile, P.) TET 052-A (Skinny Dipping X Tetra Wildest Dreams) 43 MRe. SEv. vfr. emo. 8 x 1 ½ x 1. 13 wingspan. Crispate spider. Spider ratio 4.2:1. 7-way branching. 45-50 buds. Strong erect scapes. Only one of two keepers from the difficult to use Tetra WILDEST DREAMS, PEACOCK FEATHERS is a very different kind of spider. This pink with a red eye is a different color combination from what is usually seen in the spiders. Blooms are carried on tall well branched scapes that always garner attention in the garden. Visitors note the plant habit with all the buds and branching on this cultivar. Although it does not have quite the bud count of GOLD PINWHEEL it is our best branched spider in the fall collection. (An aberration in the spiders is that sometimes a branch will not have 7 buds which is typical of the full forms). An excellent parent for pinks, lavenders and whites with pink or lavender eyes. Easily fertile both ways.
