Sainte Genevieve (2009) Tuscawilla Blackout x Rose Impact
Tetraploid 31" tall, 4.5" flowers, Dormant, Early-midseason, 24 buds. Bright cherry orchid flowers with cream midrobs and yellow to green throat. Delightful in a clump and fertile both ways. Donated for fund-raising purposes to the Foundation for Restoration of Ste. Genevieve and held for increase at Daylily Lay.
I flagged four bright ones from this cross. Over the years of evaluation I eliminated them one by one until I settled on this branched and budded one with the best green thoat and vigorous growth.
