Another for daffseek.
 Ffrom Cornwall to Kapiti.One of the first releases from the Rosewarne breeding program,in the 1960,s  to early  1980,s.
This was one of the motivators of my early cutflower breeding attempts.
 
Flowering in Kapiti now  –  about 2 weeks ahead of Malvern City – the standard by which early flowers are measured.
 Good flower rate, opens well from bud. Not a huge bloom, but large enough.
Perhaps could confirm what the Cornish growers are saying,  the stem is a little soft.
However good stem length , strong neck and excellent stance.
