An AVF original, 'Summer Melon Sorbet' is the result of years of our very own breeding efforts. The vigorous plants produce blooms in soft sorbet tones of cantaloupe, honeydew, and golden melon. Makes a beautiful backdrop toward the middle of the garden border. An excellent cut flower. Will add colour and texture to the garden or vase.
