Hybridizer notes: (Dan Trimmer, 2004). Tetraploid (Steve Trimmer X Rapid Eye Movement) 34 EM. Re. Ev. PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL comes from a perhaps illogical cross of one spidery flower and the other, a round ruffled bloom. The result was a tall stunning 7 cultivar that should have garden impact and remain on the scene long after most current pastels have left our gardens since I believe flowers are mostly about the color and all else is secondary. PHIL has size, color and impact to spare.
