Many of our 'seasoned' customers will remember the old 'Green Magic Strain' developed in the late 50's by Jan de Graaff. With the demise de Graaff's nursery, the original seed parents of his magnificent strain were lost and with their loss it was not possible to continue the true strain.
Available now in very limited numbers, 'Green Tea' is a selection that is the best of the best that de Graaff's strain had to offer. Where the old strain was known for its lovely green centers, 'Green Tea' displays its rarely found in lilies green color on the petal reverse making it more desirable in the garden. Part of the breeding line contributing its color to our ever-popular 'Emerald Angel' 'Green Tea' has more than withstood the test of time and is destined to become a garden classic.
