Coming from the Latin word gēnomos which literally means "earth-dweller", gnomes are thought to live underground and guard precious treasures there.  Folklore has it that the sun's rays will turn gnomes into stone and so the gnomes avoid this by spending the daytime as toads. Gnomes also have fabled powers which allow them to do many things, such as find injured or dying animals for which they feel they are responsible for, because of their love for nature and animals, all the creatures of the forest are friends of the gnome.  In flower form, almond petaloids keep parallel the subterranean colors of the earth and a green yellow throat allows the GUARDING GNOMES to see everything going on in the garden with it's mystical eye of cerise, lavender, white, and blue.

Written neatly on vanilla parchment petals, we read the story of a lavender and cerise veined band that declared war on mauve backgrounds paired with so-called "blue" eyes. Boasting 5 way branching, great bud count, the clearest petal color, and most consistent radial bands, WICKED MESSENGER is a forerunner in the race to shades of indigo and beyond.  Named after Bob Dylan's 1960s song..."There was a wicked messenger, From Eli he did come, With a mind that multiplied, The smallest matter. When questioned who had sent for him He answered with his thumb, For his tongue it could not speak, but only flatter."
