(Reed, 2018) 38" M 6" dormant, diploid, Unusual Form-cascade.
Dark Hollow is a dramatic, brooding kid from Flight of Orchids. It is a recurved, dark raspberry bloom with a huge dark mulberry-wine band feathering onto the petals. It has "eyelash" lines extending into the green throat from the eyezone, and cream midribs. It is ruffled, and has nice 3-way branching (21 buds). Grows well and sometimes reblooms. Pollen and pod fertile.
Parentage: (seedling x Flight of Orchids)

Garden Fairy is a dark rose pink with lighter pink ruffled edges, and has a watermark and green throat. It is a narrow form, cascading and pinching. This is the seedling known as "Reedling 22" which was seen at the AHS National Convention in 2017 at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens Region 3 Hybridizers’ Bed. It won best seedling. It has excellent 4-way branching and a bud count of 30. It often presents multiple blooms open per scape. Pollen and pod fertile, it is a good breeder.
The parentage is (purple seedling x (Scarlett’s Web x North Wind Dancer)). A favorite here.
Opal Road is the best of a large number of patterned seedlings from the cross of a Faulkner seedling with my Cherry Peacock. It is tall, dormant, and diploid, with a large bloom with good substance. Its outstanding characteristic though is the clean, clear colors. It is a clear near-white cream base color, and the patterned eyezone is sharply defined and ranges in color from cream to berry to rosy purple. Many layers of color appear, and the pattern can range from one concentric circle of cream to four. Even when less dramatic pattern is showing, it is gorgeous shades of color. It is a uf cascade-spatulate form. Pollen and pod fertile, it is a good parent. It has re-bloomed for us twice this fall, opening well in cold weather, and with extended bloom late into the evening. It has two branches and 14 buds. Parentage: (Faulkner seedling x Cherry Peacock) Supply is extremely limited.
