Westchester Blue Eyes X Strength of Purpose
This big, wide, round plum purple has a stunning, light lavender orchid watermark with fascinating dark veining and white midrib, white edge and a green to yellow throat that add up to an exciting yet simple elegance. An amazingly good grower, West River clumps quickly and has lots of big flowers, but is a little slow to recover from transplant. Here in South Dakota, ‘West River’ means anyplace west of the Missouri River which bisects the state, where we have totally different geology and climactic conditions from those ‘East River’. As bold as the landscape of the Black Hills, West River has a simple elegant beauty that is magnified by it’s large size and easily earns a place in any garden. Super fertile both ways. $100.00 double fan
Helen Louise Karl x Helen Louise Karl
Lots and lots of flowers grace a very sturdy, tough plant. Antique Gem is an intriguing, muted mauve cranberry smoke self loaded with magnificent ruffles and small teeth on it’s lacy white edge over a spring green to yellow throat. Antique Gem also has some teeth on the sepals and always opens perfectly here. This subtle yet elegant flower performs well here in South Dakota, and the kids have insane teeth and bud count if crossed that way. Very fertile both ways. $100.00 Single fan
Absolute Ripper X Seventh Twist
This extra large clear imperial purple is a great show and garden flower. The interesting, unique ruffling on the petal edges makes these flowers appear to be dancing on the wind. A white edge and light mid rib in the eyezone over a green to yellow throat completes the picture. Dakota Windswept clumps quickly, and in full bloom makes a stunning addition to any garden. Greatly admired by garden visitors and throughly tested in Florida where it also performs very well, reblooming reliably. Throws big kids if crossed that way. Fertile both ways. $100.00 double fan
Screamer – 6″ M 30″ 25b Re UF Crispate Dor Tet . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . GCB6B1-5-6
Getting Closer X (Best Buddy x Dakota Bliss)
A favorite from the first flower, this toothy, ruffly bright neon yellow crispate has a slightly lighter midrib and a spring green throat that spills out onto the petals. Prior to Screamer, crispates were all smooth tailored edge flowers, so I was delighted when Screamer bloomed with its’ ornate edges. A fabulous flower that has been loaded with pods every year and never misses a beat. It is a healthy, good grower, but like all perennials, needs some time to get established. Greatly admired by visitors to the garden. Parent on many superb toothy, ruffly green-yellow seedlings. Very fertile both ways. $150 single fan. limited. Not included in collection.
Cool Raspberry Smoke X Calypso Fringe
A deep glowing, clean, clear violet purple with a white edge and spring green throat, ruffled edges, and slight relief in the eyezone make Dakota Mystic a magical flower. An exceptionally strong plant with good bud count and quick increase, the flowers are held above the foliage in a pleasing array, making an exceptional garden show. Purples don’t usually stand out in the garden, but this one does. Dakota Mystic has produced some very exciting sculptural and carved seedlings in alluring colors. Fertile both ways. $100.00 large 2-3 fan divisions.
Calypso Fringe X (Glittering Elegance x Angel’s Smile)
A fun flower, Smiling Lemon is round and ruffled with a few small teeth thrown in for grins and giggles. This bright, clear lemon yellow self sports ruffles on the sepals as well, and a spring green throat. A tough, hardy plant and a good grower, it increases well and carries 30 buds per scape, and the flowers never interfere with each other here. If you live in a place with good rain, it may well have more buds for you in your garden. When asking another hybridizer why they only did purple, they said it was the only color with good bud count, so, I just had to introduce Smiling Lemon. Great for the front row where you want lots of color. Fertile both ways. $100.00 double fan.
Spacecoast Tiny Perfection X Getting Closer
Dakota Joy is a diminutive, proportionally small plant and flower. This clear bright gold self with a green throat is round and nicely ruffled. It is a hardy, strong grower that clumps quickly and covers the foliage with a glowing crown of flowers that are consistently beautiful and custom made for the front row, by a patio, or in a pot if you live in a place where winters are warm enough for that. My favorite from a large cross, Dakota Joy throws kids of fabulous form and clear colors on small, well proportioned plants. Easily fertile both ways. $100.00 double fan
Addis Ababa X Calypso Fringe
Calypso Glow is a bright, luminescent glowing raspberry with a lighter hot pink watermark that captures attention in the garden. The perfect piecrust ruffles and white edge add a certain flair to this exqusite yet durable flower. The green to yellow to white throat adds sparkle. A personal favorite in the garden, Calypso Glow has been used heavily for breeding and has produced great ruffled kids. Superior grower with a nice scape and plenty of flowers. Clumps quickly. Fertile both ways. $100.00 double fan.
Order soon, before I change my mind and decide not to sell it and keep it all for myself.
Puppy Dog Kisses X La Dolce Vita
From a very small cross, I got exactly what I wanted, which almost never happens. I got the large flower size from Puppy Dog Kisses and the great color, form, and plant habit from La Dolce Vita, a fabulous overlooked Moldovan. I have always wanted a green throat that stays green all day and Wanna Dance does that, shown in the top photo taken at 6:30pm. A nice pink with ruffly edges and a green to yellow throat, and a bold red eye that goes back to Tet Siloam Virginia Henson, but on a large flower. With plenty of buds, Wanna Dance does nicely as a front row or focal point plant. Kids almost always have a red eye. Fertile both ways. $100.00 large 2-3 fan divisions
2021 Introductions by Ted Blaney. Registered Blaney-Karl
Mal X unknown
Hybridized by Ted Blaney, I offer Genuine Pearl here because I feel truly nice near whites are so rare. A very pale pastel polychrome with a green to yellow throat and nice ruffles, this flower has excellent substance with some relief in the eyezone area. The plant is tough and hardy with quick increase and plenty of flowers, which have a special lustrous pearl-type finish on the petals. This plant endures torture every winter, always blooms beautifly, and holds a special place in my heart. Extremely difficult but possible pods, good pollen. $100.00 double fan
Ginny X Adorable Tiger
Hybridized by Ted Blaney, I offer Solar Beacon here because so many people see it in my garden and want it. Solar Beacon is a bright clear gold with a deep red eye, green throat and ruffles. The intense color saturation of this flower is noteworthy. On the tall side, in full bloom, Solar Beacon will be the first thing anyone notices in your garden. It draws them like a magnet, and they ask “What’s that?” With plenty of flowers and quick increase, Solar Beacon is truly a beauty and a joy to behold. Very Fertile both ways. $100.00 double fan
