Selected by John Wister from the Dexter collection on the Scott estate in Wallingford, Penna., this plant was originally identified as Scott #1 by the Dexter committee. It received its name from the Scott Foundation. It is very successful in Pennsylvania and New Jersey gardens and is now spreading in the Long Island area. The flower is very nearly a bicolor, of strikingly intense pink and white. 'Todmorden' was appreciated by many ARS members at the 1971 Annual Meeting tours to the Tyler Arboretum and other gardens.
