Named for my buddy Ed Burton, who not-so-wisely sells seeds he should keep & grow himself. Ed had always been touting on Persian Ruby & Robb Cobb, often telling me to get them. I got seeds from him instead. Out of the 6 he sent, grew this gorgeous creature. In order to give credit where credit is due, it is aptly named for the man who lives in Wisconsin & made the cross. Loves ya Ed!

From seeds obtained from Ed Burton, when I was working with Wonder of it All, came this unique yellow beauty, named for his wife, Kay. A shorter one for me to register, the blooms sit above the foliage, having a nice floating effect.
Wisconsin Kay is a very frothy yellow, round & ruffled self, displaying darker knobs & hooks at the edges, with the slightest hint of green in the throat.
