*TAOS (Stamile,P) TET 5119-C
[(( Ming Porcelain x Crush On You) x ((Artic Snow x Tetra Gentle Shepherd)
x Tetra Monica Marie)) X Shimmering Elegance] 24” EMRe. Dor. fr.ext.
EMO. 6” x 3¼” x 2¼”. 3 way branching. 20-25
buds. The color in the photo of TAOS is not quite right.
The flower in the garden is paler. It is a pale pastel cream with
a pink blush. Think the color of a pearl and it will be close to
the real color. I can’t say whether it is the beautiful form, heavy
substance, pale pearlescent glow or deep Kelly green throat but there
is something about this flower that makes it special to me. I have
used it back into the pinks and whites from which it came. The seedlings
from it have been extremely vigorous and I am anxious to see what TAOS
will produce next year. A fascinating cultivar with an unusual pedigree
for both pink and white breeding. As a pastel, I think it could be
used with any color to improve clarity and form. Fertile and an easy
parent both ways. Simply beautiful………………...$100.00
