Standards butter yellow ground, dark charcoal-purple midrib, some charcoal purple plicata marks over central 1/3 becoming wide charcoal-purple band; style arms charcoal purple; falls butter yellow ground, narrow charcoal-purple plicata band becoming wider at hafts, dark brown veins on haft and dart at end of beard; beards gold tipped brown; ruffled; pronounced sweet fragrance. 'Stripe Three' X 'Ballistic'. Mid-America 2008. Honorable Mention 2011; Award of Merit 2014.

Hybridizer's Comment: 'Be Brief' Short, concise, to the point; in other words, to Be Brief. This garden pixie proves good things come in little packages. Butter standards are almost completely covered with wide charcoal purple plicata bands and dotting. Very round, precisely ruffled butter-yellow falls have narrow dark purple plicata bands becoming wider at hafts. Space between black lines over hafts is sanded and dotted plum. Brown beards are a nice complement.
