| From AIS Bulletin #301 April 1996 Introducing ORANGE GUMDROPS (Niswonger '96) Sdlg. SDB 1-92: Pink Caper X Lankow 2A-28-3: (Spring Bonnet x Maybelle Wright L-85: (Blue Trinket x Cotton Blossom». SDB, 10" (25cm), E. Here we have another example of intermediates being used to improve the pink in SDB's. In this case an IB is involved on the pod parent side with Blushes an IB parent of Pink Caper and Spring Bonnet an IB in the pollen parent. However, this variety is an orange self with orange beards. The stds. are slightly lighter than the falls. This one rebloomed for me the same year it was lined out but hasn't rebloomed since. Fertile both ways. $15.00. Cape Iris.
