    Default Bllra. Tahoma Glacier 'Green'

    I really love this guy! It is a first time bloomer and I am really pleased with the size of the blooms and coloration. The buds open white with dark spots. In about a week the green starts to appear at the edge of the petals and as the blooms age the green darkens and widens. It is another long bloomer and easy one to grow. It has no scent but the coloration and form makes up for that.

    Bill, that is a beaut. I love the colour combinations, especially the hint of green. Very interesting.
