This has to be my favourite.

It always has this lovely variegation along the center of the petal.

I'm fickle, my favourite is the last one that opened.

It's very nice, I guess I will let my Sarras bloom next year, usually I cut off all flower stems. But this year I kept two S. 'Vinaigrette' flowers, and I must say, they are very nice!

I like streaky flowers.

Noticed this yesterday - an excellens yellow flower with both a yellow AND a pink flower. The pink should fade to yellow in a few days, but it's an interesting characteristic:

The plant reminded me, this is probably the one that grabs my attention.

This is probably my favourite this year.

It's the first to flower from a batch I created myself especially for the flowers.

Not perfectly two lobed petals, but this 'may' be because it's its first time flowering. If not then hopefully others will be better when they flower in a year or two.

Is this streaky enough for you Alexis?023a_zps6f24268b.jpg

I should have other crosses for these two lobed petals in the pipeline and plan on doing others in the future, because I love them so much.
