Ken's Rarity. A well formed waterlily in a dark blend of OR to DP.
Tujay's Nicola. Another miniature waterlily. A foot taller than Longwood Dainty and Robert. Lovely white to pink blooms.
Itsuzai. The unusual yellow and white cactus. B size. Many blooms had non cactus petals, but there were some great looking ones
Witteman's Best. Another find. Possibly the same variety as Witteman's Superba. B SC Red. Beautiful structure. The petals are pointed at the tips and broad at the base forming spiky cones that radiate into a globe.
Master David's Choice. Black foliage, bright red informal dec. Much like Firemountain, but taller and it does not have the spur leaf bud that distorts the stems on many Firemountain blooms.
Caproz My Maria. BB FD R. Had open centers from early to late.
Caproz Jerry Garcia. Gorgeous carmine red. B FD R, but could easily be an A FD. Not too tall and loaded with blooms.
Peach Cupid. I finally got this sport of the Cupids to grow and it was worth the wait. A lighter peach color than Kathryn's Cupid, another favorite.
Lupin Ben. Must be classified out of Ball and into something else. It is a nice variegated bloom, but not a Ball.
Lost Angel. The much awaited (by me) cactus sport of Suffolk Punch. Same black foliage, nice pink color, true cactus formation.
Kimpuu. B ID BI Y/W. Not bad SEMICACTUS form, but each bloom is different! Sometimes white tipped, always variegated. Sometimes Orange striped red, sometimes yellow striped red. Another to reclassify.
Fernridge Pride. A definite easy A size for me. Classified B ID BI Y/W. Blooms a bit shallow, but they stand out nicely in the garden. Lots of comments.
Pied Piper. I tried this old timer again, looking for good bicolors, and found it very unreliable in tipping and also weak stemmed. And it is not a Ball as classified!
Pioneer Delight. A yellow striped red laciniated cactus. B size. I found it weak stemmed and shallow. After a great flush it bloomed out and disappeared, visually, from the garden.
Wendy's Place. Pom in a lighter purple than sport parent Mooreplace. Excellent form.
Popcorn. I got this unclassified BB ID BI Y/W from Pioneer Dahlias. It has turned out to be a very nice addition. Good, slightly recurved form. Regular tipping until just recently when some solid color blooms started to appear.
Trengrove Terror. AA ID BR. A lot like Hamari Gold. Only 3.5 foot tall, good centers, good angle.
Starlight Keene. Another sport from Reginald Keene's family. Almost pure yellow with some blooms touched with darker marks. A size in the Northwest, but B in the rest of the US. Excellent form. If you have mastered any of the Keenes, this one will behave nicely. My stock is a bit unstable - one plant reverted to Salmon Keene.
Winkie Colonel. AA Decorative. ID or FD? Nice cherry red color, fairly dark, but not as dark as Zorro. BIG blooms on iron stems.
Scarborough Ace. Poor results in its first year as it had green centers until now. Good color and promising recurved formation. B FD L.
Orange Keith's Choice. The reddish-orange sport of Keith's choice. B FD OR. I found the stems to be too long and too thick, and also to curve just before touching the bloom. Very imposing and attractive in the garden.
Alpen Flathead. Collerette in Purple with a PR/W variegated collar. First to bloom and still blooming. Simply covered all year. Good form.
