SPANISH FIESTA (D. Trimmer) Tetraploid ((Border Music x Jane Trimmer) x Across the Universe)) 31” EM Re Ev. 6 ½” It’s hard to believe this pink orange bloom with the bold red eye is a full sibling to last year’s lavender CAROL TODD, but that is the case. SPANISH FIESTA is a very large, very bold cultivar that fits the definition of distinction. I love it when I can describe a flower as “gaudy,” and SPANISH FIESTA fits that bill, plus each scape carries about 30 buds. Having seen  the first crop of babies, I wish I had bred with SPANISH FIESTA even more. The red eye is dominant in its offspring as is very large bloom size with many new seedlings exceeding seven inches in width. Limited and excellent.    $200
