My mother taught me my love of flowers and helped start Browns Ferry Gardens.  She left us in 2000 and ever since friends have asked when I was going to name a flower for her.  I always told them I haven’t bloomed one good enough.  She was so special, kind of heart and loved sharing her flowers with friends.  When this flower bloomed, I knew she would approve and it has consistently proven to be worthy of her name!!!  I consider this my landmark introduction.  Yellow cream flowers with a pink blush and ½ inch deeper yellow extremely ruffled edge bloom atop very thick scapes.    The scapes are 1 inch at the bottom and when they start to grow out of the very thick dark green foliage they start a bit crooked and then a long lateral branch appears from almost every bract.  THELMA DOUGLAS is one of the biggest plants in the garden.  She has been a wonderful parent, passing on the same plant habits.  Instant rebloom.  Fragrant.  Fertile both ways.  Due to the tremendous response from visitors in the garden, this flower is very limited.
