From Tempo Two catalog, 2015: SHERBET BOMB (Blyth 2015 Aust) VEM 34”. Another step towards a pink amoena, however this is not an amoena. Standards are champagne-lilac-cream with a blended edge of champagne pink and the midribs are a bit deeper in colour. Falls as near as we can say are rose pink over lemon. A scrumptious colour combination. Beards are tangerine red. As the photo shows, flowers are full, wide and ruffled. Some show stems and it gives lovely seedlings.
