Eyeconic Pink Lemonade (photos)

seil zone 6b MIMay 7, 2012

Since this one is so new I thought I'd share a couple of pics of my first bloom on it. Just to get y'all interested!

This is a hulthemia intro this year by Jim Sproul. Jim's been working with breeding hulthemias for some time now but I think this "Eyeconic" series is the first group he's introduced on a large scale. Hulthemia roses originated in Persia and are known for having a red blotch at the base of the petals. I think it's really lovely!

Nice. How many petals, 5? What is diameter of bloom?
Let us know how healthy and winter hardy it is.
Edmunds has eyeconics on sale for $10.

There were two of the Eyeconics at the local nursery, they are interesting, but not sure they are my "thing" Might have to look at more of your photos.

Thanks everyone!

It has 8 petals, Dave, so it is a single. The bloom is about 3 inches across. I've just read that the range of hulthemias goes all the way up to Siberia so I'm hopeful that it will be hardy.

The color is very interesting, complex and diverse. The inside of the petal is paler than the outside and there is some yellow in it. The blotch is a very saturated. The bloom does fade some with age to a paler color but the blotch actually deepens.

Very nice Seil! I planted both Eyeconic Lemonade and Eyecomin Pink Lemonade about a month ago when Edmunds had them on sale. No blooms yet, but lots of growth on both :)
