(Kirchhoff 2007) 32” E Re Ex Ev 7”. This beautiful new flower is well named – Linda means beautiful in Spanish and Lubitz means one who loves in German. For many years, Linda and Richard Hooks, our “much appreciated” accountant, visit the garden during peak bloom, and Linda loves every flower she sees. Her namesake is a large peach touched pink, deepening to fuchsia rose above the throat and just inside the gold edge. The form is full, with wide overlapped segments, edged in pie-crusting, occasional pleats, teeth and tentacles. Color and substance hold in the hottest sun. Scapes are strongly recurrent and well-branched. Fertile both ways.
