South Seas Enchantment

South Seas Enchantment

Billingslea – 1996 – (Pink Flirt x Tahitian Waterfall) – Dip – 21” – 6” – Mid – Frag – Sev – Re – Ext – Rose pink self with green throat



South Sea Enchantment is a beautiful pink cultivar that shows very clean color. The foliage is semi-evergreen and the plant is very hardy here in my garden. The scapes are short, so it is best used for the front of the garden or for borders. I have accounts of it surviving in both the north and the south.

The plant shows high rust resistance, but only moderate resistance to insect predation. It has breeding value for rust resistance and has been noted to have rust resistance in many gardens and in The Arkansas Rust Evaluation from 2001/2002.
