BESIDE MYSELF (Jeffcoat J 06)
Tet, 36 , M, 7, D, UNUSUAL FORM Crispate
(RISEN STAR x EXOTIC DANCER)
BESIDE MYSELF is a sib to SPLISH SPLASH and some visitors at the 2003 National Convention preferred it as the two were grown next to each other. It is not as tall as its sib but has rebloomed better in our garden. Some days the rose splashes are more evident and heavier on the sepals and the rose band highlights the large yellow green throat. Flowers are carried on medium tall scapes with 3 way branching and 12 buds approximately six inches from top and well above the medium green foliage. Fertile.
