NIGHT MUSIC (Mitsch) 1988 4W-P. LM. 19" (Pink Chiffon x D29/2 (Carita x Z20/(Green Island x Accent)) MM33/5. A great many doubles from pink breeding have been raised with varying degrees of quality. Traits such as heavy substance, broad petaloids, broad perianth, depth and quantity of pink are all criteria for selection.
Night Music is exemplary in all of these traits. The depth of color has been consistent as has been the form and durability.
It would appear Green Island has imparted the very rounded form heavy with substance to its progeny once again, and Accent undoubtedly was instrumental in producing the depth of color as well as substance.
Some pollen has been collected and about one third of the flowers have stigmas here.
SUNDAY CHIMES (Mitsch/Havens) 1987 5W-W. L. 16" (Pigeon x T. albus) HH85/2. Probably the pinnacle of perfection thus far attained in our efforts with white triandrus, this is of the highest quality.
Sunday Chimes is beautifully formed with broad perianth segments strongly reflexed and a goblet shaped cup with green eye, generally two florets per stem. Heavy waxy substance characterizes the entire flower.
GOLDEN POND (Throckmorton) 1982 3Y-YYO. ((Oasis x Green Island) x (Aircastle x Irish Coffee)) T70/2/10. This flower is capable of being the best in any show.
One of the truly most beautiful of the small cupped yellows, Golden Pond is a large flower of impeccable form, having very broad overlapping yellow perianth and a small saucer shaped crown of golden glowing yellow with a slightly darker rim which borders on orange. Heavy substance and strong stems give the flowers.
