Aquarius.  Bremer.  2019.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  (Theresa Ann x Autumn Harvest).  Seedling number is ‘NB32’.   Certificate of Merit at APS 2016 Exhibition. Heavy full double of rose/yellow/cream/peach blends. Short red flares are not visible.  Wide outer petals, center petals are smaller with notches and are highly ruffled. The petals twist and turn at the center creating a full double form. Flower carriage on plants in outward and downward. Flowers are large and heavy causing carriage to be more downward than I would like, but is acceptable.  Has unusual strong citrus scent. Pink stigmas and filaments are red at their base. Sheath is light red. Average amount of bloom for a lutea hybrid. Usually has one terminal and two side buds.  Fertile both ways, but pollen is easier. Foliage is deep green. Plants reach 3 feet in Wisconsin and can lose stems in cold winters, which easily regrow from ground shoots. Foliage is wide and deeply cut with slight red coloration on the upper surface of the petioles. Aquarius is a constellation of the zodiac, situated between Capricornus and Pisces. Its name is Latin for “water-carrier” or “cup-carrier”.    It is a great cut flower for floating in water and provides a wonderful scent to a room.   Ships in late September to mid October.  AGE: Field grown, 4+ year old graft or division from larger plants – our choice of available plant material upon harvest.
