Species & Cultivars

Frau Taiko (H) (Ebihara, Hiroshi, Ninomiya-machi, JP) 1996
Height & Width:

Syn. Angel Song, & PP10,372 (Lady Series)

A distinct cultivar which originated as a seedling from controlled hybridization of the H. macrophylla cultivars `Crystal` and `Silver Edge` and is distinguished from its parents and all other cultivars by the combination of the distinctive pigmentation pattern of its sepals which gives the florets an appearance of being sharply outlined by a tiny white line; its compact growth habit; the ease with which it can be forced in a greenhouse; and its large, dense, long-lasting inflorescence having a strong peduncle which does not require staking for support, making it ideal for pot culture. Sepal pigmentation of individual plants depends on the nutrients and pH of the growing medium.
