I would not be anywhere close to having the seedlings I have if it were not for meeting Larry Grace. His kindness, generosity and mentoring have much
to do with where I am today. Of course only by the Grace of God am I able to afford this and to experience the beauty that only he can create. o as you can
see, Touched by Graces Hand has two conitations for the name. Touched by Grace's Hand is a hybridizers flower. In the deep
south the scape is short 20" on the initial bloom and has a low bud count 10 - 12. I probably should never introduce this flower but the seedlings she has
produced as a pollen parent are nothing short of breathtaking. In the north, South Carolina to be exact, she has a 24" scape with a bud count of 20 or more.
Charles and Heidi Douglas were impressed this year. I cannot thank them enough for growing my flowers better than I do! :)

Melee is a flower that everyone visiting the garden has tried to talk me out of. The stir this flower creates in the garden visitors is nothing short of a Melee.
An unexpected late season bloomer, branching has been counted at seven abd eight on three-year-old clump. Melee is a bright cherry red flower with a
washed halo She put on a fabulous show late in the season. Melee fertile both ways and is a good parent for reds and purples.

Lisa and Tiffany is named for two very special young ladies from the Shreveport/Bossier area. Perfect ladies and fabulous hosts.
Lisa and Tiffany is my first introduction from Christine Tuminello LeGrand. This clear baby ribbon pink with darker edges has been used
in my edges without eyes program. You may have guesses it by now, these special young ladies are the daughters of John LeGrand.
Elegant is the best way to describe this classic beauty.

Unexpected Romance is a surprisingly good parent, a great great grand kid of Boisterous Behavior (L. Gates) this flower is proving to be a
good pod parent for reds and dark flowers. A fertile pod parent, Unexpected Romance will set pods on the hottest of days without the benefit of shade.
Unexpected Romance is a tall well branched and budded cultivar is a must for both the collector and the hybridizer.

Do Not Disturb glows in the garden. This jewel set itself apart after Hurricane Katrina.
All of the crape myrtles in the garden had been blown over. Do Not Disturb was
standing tall right through the middle of a downed tree. Do Not Disturb has an
irridecent trait that passes on to it's offspring.
