GLORY OF THE RAINBOW is a true delight to behold!
"She" is the longest bloomer in the garden and a very good parent for lovely eyed and edged seedlings.
"She" is a JACKIE'S CHOICE seedling, and was likely crossed with LAKE EFFECT as the pollen parent.
GLORY OF THE RAINBOW has just been registered and lineout
begins this Spring with limited availablity Fall of 2013.
UNFORTUNATELY THE WINTER
OF 2012-2013 WREAKED HAVOC ON GLORY OF THE RAINBOW-I THINK WE DIVIDED IT TOO LATE AND DIDN'T TAKE IN TO ACCOUNT THE SUMMER DROUGHT BESIDES- BECAUSE OF THAT , AND BECAUSE WE 'NEEDED' TO USE IT A LOT THIS SUMMER, IT WON'T BE AVAILABLE UNTIL FALL 2014 AT THE
"Her" blooming marathon started on June 30th with a very dry period to follow. On August 27th there were still at least three buds yet to open. She is quite a bud-builder!
GLORY OF THE RAINBOW has pink-ish almond petals with a shaded "rainbow-like" mulberry eye and a double edge of mulberry and ivory. All enhanced by a vivid green throat.
Genesis 9:12-17 is telling of the rainbow as
God's visable promise to mankind to never send another flood over the earth.

PLEASE NOTE: AT THIS TIME WE NEED TO HOLD GLORY OF THE RAINBOW FOR INCREASE. WE FOUND OUT THIS SUMMER WHEN WE HAD SOME MORE WONDERFUL
FIRST YEAR SEEDLINGS OUT OF GLORY OF THE RAINBOW THAT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE ARE ABLE TO USE IT SUFFICIENTLY BEFORE WE RELEASE ANY MORE OF IT TO THE PUBLIC. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE!
