A Gold Centred Alpine - Gollum
One of the Lord of the Rings series bred by John Radford. It flowers late, is very reliable and has been a show winner. Other members of the series include, Arwen, Bilbo Baggins, Legolas, Rivendell and The Lady Galadriel
A Fancy - Fairy Light
A stunningly coloured fancy with pips shading from mustard to plum at the peripherary. It has neat shaped pips but can tend to cup rather than laying flat.
A Double - Nymph
Bred by Ken Whorton in 1995, Nymph has creamy-beige-pink flowers and is a reliable plant with a light perfume. A nice subtle double that lifts the mood from some of it's more sober compatriots.
