Parentage: (P. tenuifolia ‘Plena’ x P. tenuifolia ‘Rosea’) F2. Seedling number TF-14. First bloomed 2012, first propagated 2013. Very early blooming SINGLE flowers are pink, 7.6cm (3”) in diameter, upward facing, and are borne one per stem. Petals are rounded and cupped. Guard petals are 4cm (1.5”) wide. Three rows of petals give the impression of taffeta petticoats. Faint fragrance noted, typical of P. tenuifolia. Possesses three to five slightly tomentose, green carpels with white stigmas of normal anatomy. Disc is white, poorly developed. Filaments are 1cm (0.4”) in length, white, with yellow anthers 0.5cm (0.2”) long. Fully fertile both ways, though a fertility barrier seems to exist between it and other pink tenuifolia. Plants reach 45cm (18”) at maturity, and carry finely-cut foliage as typical of the species, pale green upon emergence. Does not require mechanical support.
