Seedling number B112. Parentage unknown. First bloomed 2015, first propagated 2017. Previously distributed under seedling number. Very late blooming DOUBLE flowers are powder-pink in color, fading to ecrĂș. Buds are a mint-green color, striated with dark red, and flowers may continue to exhibit the mint-green color as they develop, until fully open, when the color fully changes to light-pink. Flowers also exhibit pink dots shortly after opening, though these quickly fade away. Flowers are 16cm (6.3″) in diameter, upward facing, and average four to five per stem. Guard petals are ruffled, irregularly notched, and average 4cm (1.5″) in width. Fragrance noted. No fertility noted. Plants reach 80cm (31.5″) at maturity, and carry narrow-pointed, green foliage. Foliage at the time of emergence is purple-red in color. Growth habit is upright, but does benefit from mechanical support due to the heavy blossoms. Named for its green buds.
