PIERRE S. du PONT
(Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis x Tet Siloam Goliath)
7” flower, 4-way branching. 30 buds on a 36” scape.
This is one of the most beautiful clear iridescent pinks I have seen. In my mother’s garden in North Carolina, under cooler Spring temperatures, the flower sometimes has a slight coral undertone. The extreme heavy ruffling makes this plant a true standout.
Pierre S. du Pont (1870-1954)
One of America's most celebrated industrialists and horticulturalists. Pierre spent his entire lifetime searching the world for rare plants and established one of America's foremost private gardens, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania
