Cytherea
Hybrid

The flower form of 'Cytherea' approaches perfection. Very large, close to fluorescent pink semi-double flowers of fabulous symmetry. The strongly cupped petals are remarkably long and form an almost closed ball that slightly opens at higher temperatures. Very strong and erect stems. An outstanding variety in the landscape because of her average height, bush habit and compact flowering. A very unique variety and one of our first personal favourits.
