From Korth: “Many of our hybridizing attempts were to take beautiful flowers from southern programs and breed them into our hardy genetics. The hope is to produce great flowers with new genetics that will thrive in our northern climates. Many of these attempts fail but some are successful. ‘My Living Hope’ is a success story. We used the southern bred ‘Cutting Loose’ with the hope of incorporating its lovely color and form into our northern hardy flowers.

The flowers of ‘My Living Hope’ are a clear lavender enhanced by a ruffled white edge and lighter watermark. Like many flowers in our garden, the petal color of MLH will vary with bloom season temperatures being darker in cool weather. MLH blooms early in the season for us but gives us another show a month later through rebloom. As a breeder, ‘My Living Hope’ is fertile both ways and has given us some fine seedlings.” Dormant.
