The first batch will come from Mid-America. They no longer sell the 2011 Dykes winner in their catalog so Drama Queen will come in batch two. But the 2012 winner Florentine Silk is in the pipeline! Along with some other winners and some new introductions. I am excited...

|Heat Is On|
HEAT IS ON(T.Johnson ‘13) TB Early-Midseason 35” (89cm) Standards are intense pinkish apricot blend. Wine veins overlay paler apricot sunbursts on wide and ruffled falls. Remainder of fall is dark wine. Tangerine beards bump the heat up one more notch. Heat Is On demands you stop and take note of its presence in the garden. Sdlg. TB30A: Snapshot X Guardian Angel
