$20.00 Double Fan
Reed, 2006 - 30" M 4" ev. Dip. Polytepal rose pink with variable blooms, and fast growth. Fertile.
BANJO BIRD is out of OKLAHOMA KICKING BIRD, and has the rose color of its parent, and some evergreen tendencies. It has been hardy here in zone 6. It is a pretty bright rose pink, with good branching. But its main interest is the degree to which it has polytepal blooms. In 2005 more than 50% of the blooms were polytepal; in 2006 the percentage was much lower (along with other polytepals in the garden, for no defined reason). With no guarantee of consistency, I offer this cultivar with potential for breeding polytepals in rose pink colors.
