Harwood – 1997
Bloom 7” (18cm) x height 23” (58cm)
Outstanding colour! Burgundy purple with purple-black eyezone, yellow-cream halo and very green throat. This one starts blooming quite late in the season for me and is always a welcome surprise. Great for the front of a border. Unique
Salter – 1998
Bloom 5.5” (14cm) x height 22” (56cm)
Gold self with yellow-green throat, extreme ruffles and a small yellow edge. Sometimes I have seen pleating in warm weather – see my photo. It has very heavy substance and often looks like it is made of leather! It puts on a great front of border show with nicely branched scapes. Very hardy.
Abajian, G – 2005
Bloom 3.75” (10cm) x height 27” (69cm)
*Small Flowered Unusual Form*
A lovely little Unusual Form for the front of a border or even a large pot. It is a pale vanilla cream with an explosive layered violet-blue eye, outlined in magenta, that covers most of the face. The sepals have an unusual pattern that compliments the petals. A large citron-green throat beautifully accents the unique flower. When it establishes it makes a lovely clump with a multitude of small exquisite flowers. You will see from my photos that it looks almost white on a very hot day and more cream on a cooler day.
**Please note this cultivar is not suitable for pot culture unless it is given winter protection in a greenhouse** Hardy in the ground once established - it is from Florida so slightly tender until established. Barking thickly around the base for winter keeps it safe and is so worth it - its gorgeous.

Unusual Form Crispate-Spatulate
36" tall x 9.5" flowers
Huge fragrant blooms in lemon yellow self with green throat that radiates on hot days. An early/mid bloomer which reliably blooms again late summer with even bigger blooms (see pic of my hand next to the flower!) A real beauty. A clump in full bloom is spectacular. Rarely seen for sale in UK....if ever. Imported from USA by me. You will receive 2 nice fans.
Hensley, Dale – 2010
Bloom 6” (15cm) x height 32” (81cm)
Fiery orange double with red veins above yellow to green throat. Petals are ruffled with lighter edging. Good branching and budcount and lovely dark green foliage. This one just draws you towards it – a fabulous focal point at the front of a border. Choice, limited and never seen for sale in UK.
Salter – 2002
Bloom 6” (15cm) x height 31” (79cm)
A pale lavender flower with a darker grey-lavender eye accentuated by a large appliqued yellow throat that appears to be sprayed on surrounding a small green heart. It is slightly narrow and strappy and substance is smooth – great for crossing with Unusual Forms. Good branching and budcount makes this a very desirable cultivar. Very limited.

by Elizabeth Shooter
31" tall x 8" flowers
This is a cultivar I have never sold before but dug the clump the other day and can now offer it for sale. LILY MUNSTER is beautiful with stipples, stripes and dots in lavender rose buff with a green throat. A clump is breathtaking. It has it all! It blooms Mid season and then blooms again later in the season.Good performer. Very limited indeed. Never seen for sale in UK only by one customer who I gifted with the plant a few years ago! Imported from USA by me. You will receive 2 nice fans.
Rice, J - 2007
Bloom 6” (15cm) x height 38” (97cm) and reblooms in UK
Reddish burgundy with a large cream watermark and bubbly yellow edge which turns into little teeth on a hot day. An established clump has good strong branching and a mass of blooms – then it has a short rest and sends up more scapes. Desirable.
Unusual Form Cascade
24" tall x 7" flowers.
This huge Unusual Form always seems so much bigger than its registered size. It is soft pink with a darker eye and edge with chartreuse green throat. It flowers early-mid and often flowers again later in the season. It has a very feminine look and is very pretty. Not often seen for sale. You will get 2 nice fans.
