Genetic Artist has been very a good grower for me in my area. In areas where soil is acid, a little lime should be
added. Gypsum is recommended. Arilbreds need more
frequent division. Sharp drainage

Description of Gentic Artist Odd coloration of bronzy yellow
& blue, center petal to side of ribs metallic lavender blue
with red bronze & tint of henna. Lavender beard
