PLOVER (Mitsch) 1976 2W-P. M. 19" (Precedent x Carita) F33/20. At the 1975 American Daffodil Society show in Portland, we set up perhaps the finest lot of pinks that we had ever assembled, and of this lot, this was esteemed to be one of the best.
Very broad, rounded, flat, but somewhat reflexed perianth, with slightly frilled and fluted saucer-shaped crown of apricot pink.
CHERRY SPOT (Mitsch) 1978 3W-O. LM. 20" (Artillery x Avenger) F138/4. Quite white, rather pointed perianth with a most vivid orange red crown.
Tall strong stems, and a good grower. Like many of its type, it tends to vary in quality from year to year. At its best it is a very striking flower.
CEDARBIRD (Mitsch) 1990 2W-P. LM. 14" ((Precedent x Debutante x Spaceship) LL39/4. Beautiful bright color of silver pink defines the uniqueness of this flower. Its most noticeable characteristic is its bell shaped very rich clear solid pink corona with good substance, made even more impressive by the widely flanged margin.
White perianth of spade shaped segments complete the affect. A very beautiful and unique color of pink; picture on page 24 demonstrates the captivating color.
LARK (Mitsch) 1978 2Y-WWY. LM. 17 "(Irish Coffee by Richardson 3Y-W seedling) HI23/1. An exquisitely-formed flower with broad, much overlapping, rounded perianth, and a nearly flat saucer-shaped crown.
As it opens, the entire flower is of soft pale lemon, but the crown fades out to near white. Looks somewhat like Lyrebird but is more rounded and has a somewhat larger crown.
