Beautiful Pastel Peach
« on: April 16, 2017, 18:51:10 »
I acquired this gorgeous Peach last year.  It brought joy and then heartache when the flowers started to look sick and I discovered that the stem had rot at the base so I lost the flowers.  Cost me a mint so I wasn't well pleased I can assure you.  I know nothing about its breeding background just fell in love at first sight and had to have it by hook or by crook. :)  I will be watching it like a hawk this year

That's a  dream peach, Mary! Congratulatuions and commiseration. Since your horror story ends with the loss of the flowers, I take it that the plant is OK. Fngers crossed that it flowers again soon.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Leisl,Nick and Johan, must do some sleuthing and get some background info.  The plant is very robust thanks Nick, have re-potted and cleaned up all old leaves, will just have to keep an eagle eye on things.  Would a preventative spray of Copper Sulphate be a good idea ?

Hello Mary
i like the soft yellow peach with the pinkish edges.
Hope it rewards you with a nice full umbel next season
