Roubeena, (field ID code MOWI 8/3/13/3) arose from a hasty last-
Renown, (field code NOWN 25/24) Roubeena’s cousin bred from the 1998 cross with the
good seeder Nora Holman (our very vigorous white ground form) has larger crimson
flowers on longer stems, winning the CoM in wet 2009 trials at Glasgow. The rich
texture seems to ignore the threat of rain-
Coraleena (field ID code WINP 203/2/7/5/3) long known by the field name Scarletina, gets its scarlet from the influence of the crimson Winston Churchill and has passed it on to Mark Harrod .

There is still room for more fluting of the petals, but overall we are delighted with this vigorous pea and expect to see it in some wonderful exhibits.
Pocahontas, AGM 1996 and 2006 (field ID code GLAZO 28/2/2/1) The colour is in the

now officially known as orange-
