Parentage: Blushing Princess x Sparkling Windflower. First bloomed about 1985. Good substance, reliable, one bud per stem, seeds. This pink double flower has petals tending to be of uniform size, giving the flower a carnation-like appearance. Clove scent, but warm humid conditions are needed to release it. Small, 4-5″ flowers are in scale with thin stems that bend but still provide adequate support. Vigorous, new division establishes quickly, producing 30+ stems per clump. Eventually measuring 30″ high x 48″ wide. Completely devoid of stamens but it has functional carpels that set seed by tetraploid pollens. Seedling # DPSW-1.
