Polyantha - White Pet Question
Four years ago I planted four cuttings of White Pet. I was led to believe these plants rarely exceed two feet so I placed them on 27"-28" centers so that they would form a loose informal hedge. My plants grew to well over three feet and are considerably crowded now.
Also, I was told by an employee at ARE that this variety blooms white, white-white. The buds are pink and open to a white rose with petals edged in pink. Sometimes they are slightly blush on opening with no edging and sometimes they are white depending on the conditions.
Is it possible I have another variety that closely resembles white pet?
I love them. They are grand old gals that grow like weeds and bloom their hearts out. They rarely have evidence of pest or disease and are hanging tough in our horrible drought here in Central Texas without supplemental water!
Does anyone else have a White Pet that defies the variety description? Could this be a sport?
