Lemon Limerick



This lemon flower with green throat has a sort of "lilt" to the petals, like the "lilt of Irish laughter" in the song. Blooms are rounded, recurved, creped and gently ruffled, with dark anthers that contrast strongly with the lemon petals. 

Lemon Limerick was chosen first for its beauty and color--called "Lovely Lemon" in the garden. But it possesses a constellation of qualities that add up to distinction: clear color, consistent form, compact plant habit, good plant balance, and fast increase.                                                                 A strong hardy plant with healthy dark blue-green foliage. Two- to three-way branching, budcount 12-16.
Many scapes, lots of flowers. Sure the leprechauns must be smilin' at this fair colleen!
