Origin of Name

Named after Thomas Fairchild, who made the first recorded flower hybrid in 1720. This was a cross between a Sweet William and a carnation, which became known as ‘Fairchild’s mule’. With thanks to Michael Leapman for the name, which was the title of his excellent biography on Thomas Fairchild.
