'Clyde Ikins' starts out yellow and gradually, during the season, picks up pink tones. Midseason yellow and pink, overall apricot color. Late season a definite peach colour. Blooms lift above water and have a very nice fruity fragrance. Almost always in bloom. Does well in smaller spaces compared to other hardies. Well recommended!

This hardy is slightly fragrant & has a large yellowish bloom that stands above the water and has deep green leaves. The plant spread is medium and it requires full sun.
