North Wind Drifter {Schaben 2001} (Lola Branham x seedling) Height 44", Bloom 8.5, Season Mid, Dormant, Diploid, UFO Crispate, 25 Buds. She is Hauntingly Beautiful Bright Medium Lavender Pink with a thin white edge above a Green throat. She is the Sibling to North Wind Dancer which most people prefer due to higher bud count, yellow throat and more lavender than pink but less bright. I however love Northwind Drifter the most. Although Drifter is listed as a larger bloom, her blooms although more ufo/spidery so longer in lenght are less heavy than Dancer who's blooms can get so large and heavy that the scapes and flowers can fall over and have to be staked. Drifters dont do that,they are perfect and the color is more solid and just glow and stand out more as they are less pastel than Dancer. Northwind Moe, Schaben's 2006 addition, is even brighter than Drifter. but out of the three, North Wind Drifter in my opinion is the best...peace..mike.
