Seedling number BJ#49; DTXSB#20. Parentage: ‘Dreamtime’ x ‘Sunny Boy’. First bloomed 2012, first propagated 2014. Previously distributed under the name ‘Warm Clouds’. Early blooming (in Oregon, blooms in early May) SEMI-DOUBLE flowers are a warm white to blush-pink color, are 15.25cm (6″) in diameter, upward facing, and average one per stem. The pale blush-pink to white bloom has an inner glow of faint pink and sometimes yellow from the stamens. Guard petals are rounded, ruffled, and often twisted (adding interest), and average 5cm (2″) in width. No fragrance noted. Flowers possess on average three to five moderately hairy, light-green carpels, with medium-pink stigmas of normal anatomy. Stamens are between 1-2cm (0.5-0.75″) long, with blush-pink filaments. Spatulate staminodes are also present, and are blush to light-yellow in color. Fertile both ways. Plants reach 91.5cm (36″) at maturity, and carry broad-pointed, green foliage with purple margins. Foliage at the time of emergence is green. Growth habit is upright, but does benefit from mechanical support.
