GREYWOODS GINGHAM MAIDS (Turner/ Wilkinson 2014) Dor. Dip 24" EM 2.75"
Fresh, breezy, “Holly Go Lightly” cheerfulness radiates from the spritely upturned blooms of Greywoods Gingham Maids. The creamy-peach petals with lemon-butterscotch borders of this complex bitone are offset nicely by sepals that match the border color. I am reminded of Ohio girlhood days -- farm-fresh cuteness dressed in a Sabbath-best, gingham pinafore and off for go-to-meeting services with parents. The appeal of the petals is enhanced by a grass-green throat that blends upwardly into lemon with a cream halo, rimmed and veined in darker peach and bisected by complementary midribs. 15-18 buds, 3 low branches.
