Bremer, Nate
Lutea Hybrid

Seedling Number: NB-SH112. Parentage: Seidl #16 x Seidl #19. First bloomed 2010, first propagated 2016. Midseason blooming SINGLE to SEMI-DOUBLE flowers exhibit a cream base color overlaid in light pink. Light-red flares with blurred edges emanate from the flower center, and span approximately 10% of total petal length. Flowers are 12.7cm (5″) in diameter, outward facing, and average three per stem. Guard petals are rounded, ruffled, frilled, notched, and are typically 4cm (1.5″) in diameter. No fragrance noted. Flowers possess an average of five light-green, sparsely hairy carpels with yellow-green stigmas of normal anatomy. Stamens are between 1.5-2cm (0.5-0.75″) in length; filaments are maroon in color, transitioning to light yellow at the tips. Fertile both ways. Sheath is complete, and a creamy-green color. Plants reach about 76cm (30″) at maturity, and carry finely cut, narrow green foliage tinged with tones of red and purple. Flowers nod just a bit, and are carried all over the low-growing plants. It is not unusual for plants to bloom over a longer period, as a second flush of stems from basal shoots often occurs. Named for the astrological sign, Pisces, typically represented by two fish swimming in opposing directions – a symbol for the constant division of Pisces’ attention between fantasy and reality. Plants exhibit such variation in floral display that they appear to be in motion, in constant flux between fantasy and reality.
