(Austulliver) The Mill on the Floss
Bears large clusters of small, neat, deeply cupped blooms, each eventually revealing a small boss of stamens. I nitially mid pink, verging on lilac-pink, they pale as they open, the individual petals beautifully defined by their carmine edges. Held nicely above the foliage, they nod gracefully on gently arching growth, and have a sweet fruity fragrance. A healthy variety; it makes a bushy shrub, clothed in glossy foliage. Davidﾠ Austin, 2018. [...]
Named after the novel by George Eliot, first published in 1860. The story centres around the fiercely intelligent Maggie Tulliver, and her beloved brother, Tom. As Maggie matures, she increasingly struggles to reconcile Tom’s bourgeois standards, and the provincial attitudes of the community in which she lives, with her own desires.
