From AIS Bulletin #208 January 1973 Introducing BLUE MINK (Hamblen). 34", M-L. Elegance in silken textured violet-blue with hafts of chartreuse and yellow-orange beards. A "different blue," due-no doubt-to the multi-mixture of background genes. Petals fluted and ruffled with domed, overlapping stands, arched flaring falls. Strong stems with excellent bud placement. (Inv. Desert Song, Cherie, Frilly Fringes, Blue Sapphire, Cahokia, Glittering Amber, etc.) HC '72. $25.00. Mission Bell.
