Named for a very dear friend in Cincinnati, Nettie Balsamo is 98 years young and truly an inspiration.  She grew up in Italy and raised her children there during WWII and captivates us with her stories of the time.  She is sharp and spirited and we enjoy visiting her every time we go back to Cincinnati.  The flower is a pretty sculpted peach with an orange ruffled edge.  Yellow throat and fragrant.  Fertile both ways.  May go dormant up north.
