CRADLE OF REFUGE

TET 48412 (Desire of Nations x Dawn of Aquarius), 6", 32" (range of 27-33" when mature; 26" in initial bloom year), 4-way branching (with range of 2-6 way) when not crowded (5-way average in initial bloom year and 4.6 way in second year and 3.4 way in 3rd year due to decline in branching on the outer scapes), 20 buds (with range of 9-34) when not crowded (and dropping to 15 average due to decline in branching on the outer scapes when crowded), ML, Dor, some Minnesota instant rebloom some years, fr. Grape cranberry blend; icy gray lavender eye and edge; green throat. Darker and less ruffled in cool weather - see picture 3 above.
Good increaser and no spotting. Good opener in normal temps, but not a CMO and sometimes has a lazy petal when it is cold. Fertile both ways. A big thank you to Dan Robarts, who over the years has carefully studied my plants and thought that these two parents would work well together.
