Details

For Joe Gable to name this after one of his daughters, he must have felt it was an excellent plant. Recent research has shown it to be remarkably resistant to fungal root diseases. The loose trusses of large flowers are light orchid pink, moderately fragrant, with fairly narrow, light green leaves. If you want a large grower, it's one of the best performers for the East Coast, and a popular parent for hybridizing, too.
