HARK BITE (Stamile, P. ) TET [{(True Grit x Admirals Braid) x (Unknown x Song Without Words)] X Tetra Green Widow} 28 ERe. early morning opener, Evr. 7 bloom, 5-6 way branching. 25-30 buds.

A cream with an overlay of pink with gold sharks teeth. Like most sharks toothed cultivars it needs warm weather to really show its teeth. The color is so different from other toothy cultivars which have tended to be lavender and purple. This is the first pink with gold sharks teeth I know of. The whole flower is suffused with the green of its pollen parent. Pollen fertile only
