*CHARCOAL EYES (Stamile, P.) TET 2203 (Blue in the Face x Screen Pattern) 32” EM Ev Re cmo 5.75” x 3” x 2”. 4-5 way branching. 30 buds.
I have always been fascinated with two features of
Grace’s miniatures. First the turquoise coloring in some of the eyes
and second the charcoal eyes in Tiny Playmate, Little Blue Note and so
many others. With Charcoal Eyes I finally have a large flower with that
wonderful “charcoal effect”. Except for tropical hibiscus, I can think
of no other flower with the silver gray charcoal eye. Charcoal Eyes’s
vanilla cream base and outer fuchsia band and inner lavender band
compliments the inner band of gray charcoal. There is also a partial
fuchsia picotee as well as a very green throat.
Charcoal Eyes is more than just a pretty face. It
has great scapes and a great overall flower presentation so
it should be not only a good garden flower but show flower, too.
Fertile both ways but not an easy pod parent.
