  • (Saunders/Reath 1991)This semi-double hybrid came to us as seedling 16350F2 many years before we learned it had been named; it is a tall plant (36" to 40") with wide leaves and produces large and lavish pale pink flowers that are so full they look almost double; it's fertile both ways and produces heavy seed pods.
