ROSE FIESTA (Culver, 2002) Tet, 27" ML, 6" Sev.
Vibrant clear hot rose with green throat and small dark rose halo near the throat. Bryan Culver is an up and coming Ontario hybridizer who just started selling his plants commercially on a limited basis in 2003. Bryan requires plants to be hardy and good performers with clear colour so if it meets his standards, you know it is a good plant! I saw this one in Bryan's garden last year and just had to have when he finally started to sell. This one has a gorgeous colour, opens early and well and holds its colour all day. It is one I plan to use extensively in my program. The parentage to this one was not registered but Bryan says that it is from a cross of Stamile and Munson lines.
