*ORCHID BLUSH (Stamile,P.) TET 0502-A
(Taos x Chartered Course) 28 MRe. emo. ev. 5¼ x 3 x 2.
5-way branching. (3 + terminal y) 35 buds.
I told you that you would see CHARTERED COURSE in my seedlings and here
it is combined with the dormant TAOS. This beautiful white with an
orchid blush, which deepens towards the edges, gives the effect of an edge
without an eye. This effect is accentuated by the brilliant gold
edge that draws the eye to the periphery of the flower. The picture
here of ORCHID BLUSH is taken early in the season. Later blooms are
often very heavily braided in gold. This is especially true on rebloom.
The throat is a deep fern green almost olive in color. The blooms
are consistently beautifully formed but it is that orchid and gold edge
that really sets this flower apart. Easily fertile both ways
