Sunshine Opal- very early
Winter Sunshine Opal flowers are absolutely huge with 5-6 flowers on long sturdy stems. This a commercial cutting strain, in a very unique lavender pink color. The flowers are fully ruffled just like a Spencer, but they start flowering early in the season, making them a good choice for folks with springs that warm up quickly. They are equally happy when grown in the summer in cool climates.
Considered a "winter" variety, meaning it will bloom with 10 or more hours of daylight.
