(PPAF) Milk chocolate and lavender? You have to see it to believe it! It’s hard to imagine a milky chocolate-colored bud maturing to a solid soft lavender blossom. The transition is so unusual and actually quite beautiful. The chocolate is creamy, like latte, but the latte goes ‘loco’ and finishes fully lavender. The blooms have impeccable show form and are long-lasting on the plant and in the vase. Rounded, bushy plants are chock full of deep green leaves that stay clean and healthy. Beyond its novelty, this is a great plant! Flower Size: 3-1/2 to 4-1/2″. Fragrance: Mild. Hybridizer: Bedard, 2012.
