'Miss Ruta Lee' has it all. Its color is a near-white, diamond-dusted spectacle of pastel cream, peach, and yellow. The elaborately ruffled, sparkling gold edges add depth and drama as the petals sweep back to reveal the prominent, outstretched, petaloid segments. The texture is smooth and diamond dusted. Decades of hybridizing large cream and near-white doubles have unfolded before we could offer a line of dormant, double tetraploid with easy fertility of both pod and pollen. Just before the season begins to shut down, here comes a dependable, unmistakable extra-large double. Very fertile both ways. Learn more about the fabulous 'Miss Ruta Lee' here.
