From AIS Bulletin #285 April 1992 Introducing CANDY QUEEN (Niswonger '92) Sdlg. SDB 12-91: SDB 27-87: (Oriental Blush x unknown) X Ballet Slippers. SDB, 13", M. It has been difficult to get width and substance in the pink SDB's. This salmon pink is a step closer. The falls are flared and the beards are white tipped with tangerine which becomes more dominant towards the throat of the flower. It should be great for breeding pinks as well as contributing a period of long bloom to your garden. $15.00. Cape Iris.
