[(GINNY MITCHELL X SEEDING) X (GINNY MITCHELL X VANILLA LACE)]
6 1/2" evergreen, early mid-season 28"
rebloom 30 buds
The creme de la creme of my blue-eyed and edged
flowers to date and named for my father.
DAN MACK MITCHELL is a very large flower of the most extraordinary color clarity. A violet base with a blue eye and double edge. The picture was taken on a 90-degree day. Early in the spring the blue eye and edge can be a deep blue and the violet base even darker.
Occasionally, DAN MACK MITCHELL has sported 7" flowers on first blooms, but 6 to 6 1/2" is more the norm. A large double edge of cream and blue. Sometimes the cream part of the edge will be more yellow or have green tinges depending on the heat.
Plants habits are very similar to its grandparent Mildred Mitchell in having great vigor. It has good scapes with heavy rebloom.
I believe DAN MACK MITCHELL expands the gene pool for blue breeding in large Tet flowers as it comes from lines that do not include Tet Lavender Blue Baby in the parentage. I have taken it to all blue or green-edged flowers. My hope it to get a DAN MACK MITCHELL flower with a green edge.
Very fertile pollen, pods are moderately easy.
