Hybridizer notes:
TET- (FESTIVE ART X TET LAVENDER BLUE BABY) J. Carpenter- (24-MRe-5.5-Ev) What a splash of color is added with this vigorous growing performer. The pink background color is vividly accented by eyes and edges that cover half of the flower. DELAWARE DOOSY repeats well and gives a third set of scapes on occasion. Flowers have great substance and plants are strong and vigorous giving good increase of two to three fans per year. Fertile both ways.
