I love Color Of The Heart! Since first flower, this one has stood out every year. High rust resistance for 3 years and fertile. I only saw a couple of years of its seedlings under rust screening, but they showed an above average number or resistant individuals. The cross was one of those "just because" crosses, mainly just to see what would happen. I'm glad I did!

The gorgeous pink flower hovers in large numbers above an attractive plant that is vigorous. This is a real standout flower with a very good plant underneath. It has been dependable each year since first flower. I think it has a ton of breeding potential and is also a gorgeous garden plant with a lot of good growing traits, whether you hybridize or not.
