| From AIS Bulletin #189 April 1968 Introducing SUDDEN BEAUTY (Leo Clark, '68). 3/4 Arilbred. 28-30". Early to midseason. Kerr 55-9-A X Wilkes' 21-Salah. This, we believe, is one of the finest 3/4 arilbreds in existence today. It seems to have everything. S. are pure white with some fine purple veining toward the edges which fades to pure white in a few days; very wide, well-formed falls of soft yellow with styles to match. Huge brown velvety signal. Beard is wide (oncolike) and light yellow curled tips. The midribs are unbreakable and the substance is excellent-flowers last for a week or more in the most violent wind and rain. Quality is written all over this huge and thoroughly delightful flower. Stalks are strong and wiry and are produced in abundance. Vigorous and rapid of increase; grows easily with C. G. White care. Much admired by judges and visitors alike. Pod fertile with half-breds, but has not been tried with regeliocyclus or others. A good stock allows the low introductory price of $20.00.
