Bloom 9” (23cm) x height 35” (89cm)
A profusion of lavenders, yellows and greens make up this beautiful spider variant. It has a beautiful pattern with a silvery watermark and large yellow-green throat. When it mass blooms it is a picture.
Spider Ratio 4.36:1 with 12” wingspan
Santa Lucia 2000
Bloom 6.5” (17cm) x height 28” (71cm)
This one flowers late in my garden in England every year. It is red with a wide darker band above a yellow-green throat. Lovely 3-way branching with nice budcount. It is a very stunning flower and one I always admire.

Bloom 6” (15cm) x height 26” (66cm)
Cinnamon rose with darker eyezone and green throat. In very warm weather this one will produce small white gold sharks teeth. A mass bloomer that makes a very pleasing clump.
Salter – 1996
Bloom 4” (10cm) x height 28” (71cm)
Bright coral-rose with a heavy gold edge and small chartreuse-green throat. The form is very round, overlapped, full and very ruffled. Smooth substance and well branched scapes carry multiple blooms.

**Unusual Form Crispate**
I cannot praise this cultivar enough – a stellar performer in every way! It is a brilliant orange with orange red eye above a green throat. It has 3 well placed branches with a high bud count and flowers for a very long time. When it is in full bloom you are just drawn towards it – it looks stunning planted with purple and blue perennials. A top favourite of mine. Limited.

Bachman, D – 2003
Bloom 7.5” (19cm) x height 4ft (120cm)
Although registered at 48” I find this cultivar flowers slightly shorter in the UK – but still tall. Red with lighter midribs above small green throat. A nice addition to the late perennial border.
Salter, E. H – 2005
Bloom 3” (8cm) x height 25” (64cm)
Cream with blue-violet eye above green throat. It also has a blue-violet edge around the flower. Great branching and budcount – it puts on a marvellous show for the front of the border.
