Auction is for 5 seeds from the cross of PINNACLE PINK X PINK EXTRAORDINAIRE.
(Benz) tet 24" M. Sev. -Ev. (Janet Benz X Tet. Linda Agin)
PINNACLE PINK is the culmination of nearly 30 years of hybridizing with one single-minded goal‹perfectly round symmetrical form with lavish ruffling and refinement. LINDA AGIN was Tom Wilson's crowning achievement and in hybridizing, the converted tetraploid can improve every aspect of nearly anything with which it is crossed. In PINNACLE PINK, Tet. LINDA AGIN has expanded the dimensions of JANET BENZ to the unbelievable. 5 1/4" blooms boast petals over 4 inches in diameter and 2" sepals as well. These oversquare blooms are simply engulfed in huge undulating flutes and ruffles, and substance is the heaviest I have encountered in any pink daylily tet or dip‹bar none. A flower of which I could scarcely conceive in 1980 and I am still in awe when I walk out in the garden in the early morning and see blooms this wide and heavy and with such lavish ruffling open. PERFECTLY flat by 6.a.m PINNACLE PINK is reminiscent of parent JANET BENZ, but improved on every point. Color is a cleaner smoother shade of pink with a larger and more intense green throat. Much smoother texture and most veining and all traces of the halo are gone. Plants are huge and incredibly vigorous with strong thick scapes and 2-3 way branching with about 20 buds. Wonderfully fragrant and fertile both ways. Proving a tremendous parent for heavily ruffled pink, rose and even reds and deep purples. My personal favorite pink introduction and I am still using it both ways. Re-blooms. $250.00 SOLD OUT
*PINK EXTRAORDINAIRE (Pierce G.) 3034-A (Fancy Lace x Priscilla’s Smile) x (Chesapeake Bay x Tetra Rose F. Kennedy) TET, EV, EMre, 42” high, 7.5-8” flower, 5 way branching, 30-35 buds. An Absolute Work of Art.
What an amazing job Tetra Rose F. Kennedy did for my pinks. I am a stickler for clear color and there are several ways to get from A-Z. By inserting TRFK to the mix, the pinks and greens became electrified and enriched all the other colors. In PINK EXTRAORDINAIRE the flower size increased and the green in the throat literally pops. I love the cool icy watermark around the throat and around the petals. The white look to the lighter bi-tone petals and the petal edging, makes the flower quite flashy; but it’s the GREEN that makes PINK EXTRAORDINAIRE sing. This was my #1 pink pollen parent for 2014, so she must have something going on… Glorious. Fertile Both Ways.
