Mini Pearl


Mini Pearl 

Jablonski – 1982 – (Baby Julia x sdlg) – Dip – 16” – 3” – EM – Dorm – Re – Ext – Blush pink self with green lemon throat.

AHS Registry Link

A clear light melon that is extremely well-branched with lots of buds, nice foliage and often has instant rebloom with occasional late season rebloom. A mature clump often looks like a bouquet. I don't have a picture, which is ridiculous, because I take thousands of pictures every year, and I know I had pictures of it in full-bouquet clump shots. So for now, go to the AHS link above or to The National Garden Association database to see many pictures of Mini Pearl.

Mini pearl has been fertile for me and the plant has shown very good rust resistance and thrip resistance. It isn't early-midseason here, but more mid to mid-late season, so it skips serious thrip problems in my garden. The branching is very impressive, the foliage is pretty and the plant is gorgeous flowering as a mature clump.
