Area 1E – American

Section 1E

The stand-out oddity in this area is ‘Belle of the Ball’. The main bush is 4-5 meters tall and has blush pink anemone form flowers (1E-057). At its base is a much smaller plant, mostly very low to the ground and flowering rather later with deep pink flowers (1E-006). The two plants may have been planted in the same hole or one may have been the rootstock for a scion of the other. The book description is “rosy salmon, large semi-double”, so the smaller plant may be correct. The big one certainly isn’t.

‘Beau Harp’ should be solid red. It appears the bush has become virus infected as some blooms are white blotched, a form that has been named ‘Dr John D. Bell’.
