This little Siloam hybrid is a beauty, pale pink with a crisp deep wine eyezone. I love it, would never give it up. But it is a plant rascal. I never knowingly bought it. It turned up after about 8 years in two different clumps. First it appeared in a clump of the little "Bertie Ferris" a strong tangerine self. Awful colors together! It also showed up the following year in a large clump of tiny light melon "Curls" where it didn't belong! These were long established clumps, planted in new ground the day they came in the mail! Both were purchased plants and were originally really tiny clumps of perhaps three roots each. See what I mean? A rascal and indeed a Shocker!
