PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE (Always Afternoon x Twist of Lemon): Mick Morry – Tetraploid - Dormant.
5.5 – 6 inch bloom on a stately 30 to 32 inch scape. Midseason, mildly fragrant, with 4 -5 way branching with 16 to 24 buds.

Patience Is a Virtue is a hot bubble-gum pink, happy flower that represents the positive nature of the phrase – patience is a virtue.
 Patience is a necessary trait for hybridizers, and appreciation of the simple elegance, of a clear, clean flower
that breeds bigger and more ostentatiously than itself, is a hallmark of this bloom.
We have been getting mostly patterned children out of nowhere with this simple little eye.
Ms. Lanny’s seedlings with fractal red eyes were most dramatic this year.
Colourfast in the hottest days of summer, this simple but honest flower is solid
and robust for garden visitors, even at day’s end. $75 DF.
