CHRIS EVERT

Hybrid Tea

A hybrid tea in a vivid cantaloupe color, edged with blushing red.

  • Fruity fragrance
  • Suitable for zones 7 - 10

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

 No, not a subtle color. In fact, it's a 'grand slam' as far as most eyeballs are concerned. Some might call it orange-yellow, others yellow-orange — but the scarlet blush 'served' at the finish of the flower is 'game point'. The'match' is completed by a well-behaved clean plant for these showy well-formed blossoms. 

GROWTH HABIT

Deep red new foliage and large green leaves put on the final 'top-spin'. You'll 'love' it. Grows three-feet tall. Blooms from late spring to fall. Better size in cool weather. Consistent color.

ORIGINS

Named after Christine Marie Evert, a former globally #1 ranked tennis player from the US.
