(Kirchhoff 2011) Tet 30” M Re Ex Ev 5.5”
Named for one of the brightest stars in the history of film, this flower is all about glamour-in-orange - distilled by nature into perfect form and color. The blooms are flaming shades of tropical coral, gold and tangerine with darker rose-coral-orange watermark halos and wide yellow-to-green throats. The petal edges are flaming coral orange with wide gold ruffles; the texture is all about diamond dusting; substance and color hold all day. An Early Morning Opener, with full, wide, overlapped form. Claudette is exceptional in zones 5a (possibly colder) and our all-time favorite orange. Pollen is fertile.
