I've evaluated this one for a number of years, simply
calling it an "unamed orange" selection, but I decided
to give it a name at long last, 'Cantaloupe'.  It's another
of the soft melon orange colors that's hard to classify
and as hard to adequately capture an accurate image.
This is a stocky, silver-stemmed type, with large, showy
flower clusters at the height of "tauricum" season; early
July. Click here for another view of 'Cantaloupe'.
