DAZZLER (Mitsch) 1984 2Y-OR. M. 20" (Matlock x Falstaff) Z162/1.
In our fields an intense gold perianth and a fiery orange red almost flat fluted crown combine to make this a very distinctive garden flower.
It has received much comment in our display locally.
STARTHROAT (Mitsch) 1982 2W-GYW. L. 17" (Pigeon x Tryst) HH83/3.
A white flower of great substance, having a saucer shaped crown with large emerald green center banded yellow shading to white at the edge. A medium sized flower of distinction.
PINK ICE (Havens) 1980 2W-P. LM. 19"(Precedent x A5/12 (Caro Nome x Accent) GEJ5/17. A lovely smooth flower of much substance resembling Coral Light in form, except it is smaller.
The well rounded overlapping perianth segments accompany a deep pink slightly ruffled crown.
The flower's refinement, smoothness and well balanced appearance make it a worthy contestant for the show bench. Limited supply.
DRONGO (Mitsch) 1986 4W-WY. L. 20" (Gay Time x Stainless) LL66/20. A number of seed were collected from this cross in hopes of a "Stainless double".
This near white is the most rapid increaser of the group and possesses very nicely arranged petals, double perianth with additional segments arranged in whorls, the inner petaloids being white and yellow upon opening and fading to cream.
Tall strong stem and heavy substance enhances it as a garden as well as show flower.
We wish the neck were a bit shorter, but the preceding is compensated by the well poised flower.
