Sun shine is the yellow color in thin series.There are some seventeen colors. Prism Sundae series is the most striking. Please visit Floranova web site. This series has 4-5 inch blooms.If can not find Prism series then pick the most popular Falcon series with Hulla hoop series.
For Pansy Mammoth is the best. If you can not find this series pick Majestic giants 2 for blotched blooms. Crown is good choice with crisp non blotched blooms.
If you are going to plan for Anthrinum then Sonnet is the best series specially in separate colors.Hamad i always try to purchase F-1 hybrids the results are best.

For many years Sonnet is my favorite, so this year it will be on my top list.
