Based on last years availability.


Sunny Girl is a seedling of Moonrise, from whom it has inherited the same butter yellow colour. The shape of the flowers is different though, as Sunny Girl is full-petalled.


Sunny Girl is a creation of the famous breeder Chris Laning and is registered in 1985.


The heavy flowers of Sunny Girl could use a little bit of additional support as the green stems are beautiful, but slight. That’s why we recommend putting Sunny Girl in a vase with a high neck. Cut the stems diagonally, add some sugar to the lukewarm water and be prepared to welcome summer into your home!
