One of only two white creations from Kirk,
but what a white! This hybrid produces huge white blooms of a
unique shape. They open exceptionally wide with very broad, wax-like
petals. These are then set off beautifully by the equally impressive
golden centre. When viewed from a distance the flowers sit like
a flotilla of pure white ocean liners. Stunning!
At the height of summer, first day flowers
open with a gorgeous hint of peach, particularly noticeable at
the base of each petal. Although this is a large variety, in
comparison with other large whites it has a modest spread.
Unfortunately this is a little known variety, which already seems
to be in danger of being lost to cultivation. It is free flowering
and simply must be preserved for the future, though care will
have to be taken to grow it only from rhizome as it sets masses
of viable seed.
