Badenoch Beauty (Mussar, 2014)


Tet. 5.5" flower, 32 scapes. A waxy, pale pink flower with a green throat and a gold ruffled edge. Early-mid season bloomer, reblooms, semi-evergreen foliage, 3 way branching (1 lateral and a top V) carrying about 15 buds. ((Rose Electra x Harmony Ruffles) X (Mandalay Bay Music x J.T. Davis)). Just a little ways up the road from our house is an intersection that has a sign marking the former community of Badenoch. This was the site where the first settlers (from Badenoch, Scotland) carved farms out of the woods and built homes in this area in 1832. Nothing is left from those days just a few farms and a soccer field but the sign marking the former community remains. The oldest and one of the few buildings there is a stone school house built in 1889, now serving as a small community center. The pristine flowers of Badenoch Beauty will always catch your eye. It was selected from a group of my seedlings planted at Bryan Culver's farm and when he used the pollen even before I saw the plant for the first time, I knew this one was special! The pale pink flowers have a heavy substance and ruffling yet never fail to open perfectly. It's a beauty every day! Easily fertile both ways. Price $125 SF. Very limited.
