Medium /Large Decorative in Lilac Mauve colour. This cultivar was very rewarding from early season until we cut the last flower the day we lifted tubers.

Trial Ground Report - Runner-up in the 2014 Trial Grounds.

This Small is the starkest white that stands out even among white flowers. Plants were a little slow to make growth early but soon developed a pleasing bush. Form is very consistent being almost formal except for a sharp point on the end of each petal, stems were outstanding and this plant attracted much interest from visitors to the garden. One of this year’s more consistent plants.

Winkie Wanderer

Notes from the 2014 Canberra Trial Garden.

Medium /Large Decorative in Lilac Mauve colour. This cultivar was very rewarding from early season until we cut the last flower the day we lifted tubers. Never without flowers of good form on strong stems, if anything was too prolific and would most likely be even better with more control of laterals. No wonder this was top flower in the trials this year.

Winkie Wyoming

Trial Ground Notes:- Giant

In slightly Pink Red. Boy if you want a big flower I believe this could be the one. Very short plant with big foliage. Struck from a cutting very easily and still produced short plant. Early flowers were very revolute for almost their entire petal length without being completely revolute and were rather ugly. Late flowers were much better.
