Hybridizer notes: Tet (Lindas Magic x Tet James McCaskill) semi-evergreen. 6 flower, 4-way branching. 28 buds on a 34 scape.
AVA GARDNER is a clear, clean, true lavender flower with a large green throat and citron edge. This flower is very unique in that it is truly lavender. Another great characteristic of this flower is that it opens perfectly flat very early in the morning. A great parent for large lavender flowers.
Fertile both ways
