Potianara Paxton Brooks ‘Orange Surprise’ x Potinara Paxton Brooks ‘Sunset Glow’
We flowered so many wonderful cultivars from the original grex, we had a hard time choosing our two favorites to create this sibling cross. These seedlings are expected to be mostly compact growers, though a few larger growing plants are expected. Flowers will be in a range of sunset tones from orange and peach to rose and some coral shades. Warmth tolerant but the best flower coloring can appear in cooler temperatures. Some of these will flower multiple times per year.
We have a nice crop of plants established in 2.5" pots.
