Take My Breath Away

(Rhonda Fleming x Waves of Glory) [(James's Prissy Kristi)(Cristifori's Encore x Ted's Tribute to Linda)] Sev. 6.5" fl. 27" sc. M 30 buds. These dramatically showy flowers will grab you from across the garden. The petal self is a deep purple, which can soften to a lighter purple as the season progresses. The flowers have a green throat, and the plants have excellent rust resistance. However, it is the wildly extravagant gold edge that makes these flowers stand out. The pronounced gold edge seems to go on forever. One of the problems with heavy gold edges is that they often hang. Since the gold edge of Take My Breath Away is typically absent at the very tips of the petals, these flowers rarely hang. Because of their great drama, non-hanging flowers, cold hardy nature, and excellent rust resistance, these flowers have been a critical break in my hybridizing program, and are a shwo stopper in the garden.
