Tom Pouce

Tom PouceThere's little doubt in my mind that this particular variety was developed by a Dutchman. You see, the name 'Tom Pouce' is also the name of a Dutch pastry that uses yellow custard as it's creamy center filling:)

The year we took these pictures, 2001, they were particularly rich in colour; vibrant, almost iridescent. The year 2002 they flowered a fair bit earlier but they were not of anywhere near the same intensity.

Tom Pouce and Othello

Tom Pouce in the foreground, 'Othello' in the back and you can just catch a glimpse of the Heliotrope below the 'Tom Pouce'.
