WIGGLESWORTH is bright pink lavender with an excellent green throat. It is the embodiment of a variable crispate It is a constant delight, full of surprises, blooming in many different poses. Pinch, quill twist, curl, hook; you name it.
See the pictures to the left - all photos taken on the same day. It is a parent of ADMIRABLE CURMUDGEON, BOMBAY DREAMS, FUNKY MONKEY and HOLLYWOOD CALLING and several future introductions. As a breeder, it is my "go-to" parent - pod or pollen - for Unusual Forms. I use it with pinks, light and dark lavenders, purples and reds. I hope I not putting too much emphasis on WIGGLESWORTH as a breeder, because it has a remarkable garden presence and is breathtaking in a clump.
