We love this gorgeous Itoh with its abundant flowers and vigorous growth. A bit taller than some other intersectionals it has lovely apricot blooms that mature to creamy yellow. Its yellow stamens, red flares and crimson carpal tips add interest. Another wonderful variety from Irene Tolomeo, Sonoma Apricot performed beautifully last year through our long cool wet spring and tolerated the subsequent drought as well. Light fragrance. Good for cutting. Nice foliage. (Tolomeo, 1999).
