Seedling S18. Parentage unknown. First year bloomed 1999, first propagated 2000. A NOVELTY type of flower with pink guard petals, stamens transformed to narrow yellow petals, but also with additional pink petals arising from the centre of the flower. It is thus neither a Japanese form nor an anemone form, both of which are transformed singles. Two to four fragrant flowers per stem, size to 20 cm diameter (8 inches). No pollen and no seeds. Height to 80 cm (32 inches). Free standing, with a spreading growth habit. Mid to late season bloom. Fafner is a giant, who with his brother Fasolt built Valhalla for Wotan. He later takes on a dragon’s form.
