| From AIS Bulletin #185 April 1967. Introducing PREAMBLE E. 20". Intermediate. Sass F53-1 X (PROGENITOR X ROYAL BAND). This perhaps will be a "preamble" or "introduction" to a new line of plicata breeding: an "amoena-plicata" from PROGENITOR lines. Standards open ice white and fade to pure white, with no markings. Falls are white with a stitched and stippled haft area and plic border of veronica violet. Beard is white, faintly tipped pale lemon. Style arms are white, tinted heliotrope. Form pleasing, though rather plain, with just a slight bit of ruffiing. As an added asset, it has been a reliable fall bloomer in northern California, but is untested elsewhere. $7.50. Keith Keppel.
