A new cultivar from Japan, this is a translucent pinky-blue snowflake pin.
Flat blooming, slender petalled thrum. White centred pink flowers. Petals slender to the centre, with rounded, bilobed edges. The name is taken from the Arima mountains, the site of a historic hot-spring resort near Kobe.
Wave blooming, cherry blossom petalled pin. White flowers with pale blue suffusion and pale blue reverse. Like many of the ‘blue’ cultivars, this tends to flower later in the season. We do not know the origins of this very pretty compact sakurasu cultivar, which we sourced in 2005.
Flat blooming, notch petalled pin. Deep pink flowers with white suffused centre. Deep pink reverse. A very reliable cultivar, which was raised on our nursery in 2007 and named after one of Penny’s cats (which looked like the Felix cat).
Flat blooming, slender petalled thrum. Flushed pink flowers, darker towards the centre of the flower. Sourced from Japan by Martin Nest Nurseries. A very nice sakurasu, which looks very good in the evening light. The name translates as “Morning Sun on the Shore”.
