Hybridizer notes: ELOQUENTLY EDGED

DIP - #D-20-928 (26-MRe-6-EV) (LAVENDER BLUE BABY X SDLG) X UNKNOWN Here we have a diploid that could pass for any tetraploid with its eloquent and bold edging. It represents a milestone in diploid breeding for edges. ELOQUENTLY EDGED is just as its name states ELOQUENTLY EDGED and at the same time has that definite heir of distinction we desire in a new release. Repeating scapes are strong and have 3 way branching with 26 buds. Plants are vigorous and fertile both ways.
