Unregistered seedling by Krentz-Matel – 2009

These seeds were given to me by a friend to grow out.  Seedling #: LKeast#8.  This seedling is similar in size and shape to its pod parent Peggy Jeffcoat. At only 18 inches tall the 5 inch flowers sit just above the foliage. Although usually single occasionally it will display as a “loose double” with different flowers exhibiting slightly different forms, sometimes just a “tuft” in the center. The mauve flowers are lightly ruffled and have prominent white mid ribs and there is a wine eye zone and a yellow throat.  The sepals are streaked and mottled with yellow.  The petals can show some streaking as well   A midseason blooming dormant diploid.

Parentage:  Peggy Jeffcoat – light pink/yellow double x (Mardi gras Parade – lavender with a wine eye-zone x seedling)
