From AIS Bulletin #200 January 1972 Introducing TWILIGHT DANCER. Arilbred. 20". ML. Sdlg. 69-2. Two buds in terminal. See 69-2, back cover Golden Anniv. Bulletin. Very large onco-appearing flower on a sturdy stem. Standards strong, clear white with faint blue cast and a pronounced rib which is faintly green toward the base. Falls are wide and curved; a greenish base strongly sanded and faintly veined dark maroon brown. Sanding is thickest toward the top of the fall and less dense below. A thick, narrow, upright beard of bright tan ends in the top of a large brown oval signal. Large styles just lighter than the base color of the falls protrude, showing strong streaks of turquoise. The flowers are very lasting, but the second bud waits to open until the first is well past. Two stalks gave over 3 weeks of nearly continuous bloom.
