| From AIS Bulletin #265 April 1987 Introducing BRANCHING OUT (Byers '87) Sdlg. C48-4: Rio Vista X Sky Hooks. TB, 38", EMML. Pale silvery blue-pink with orange-pink beards and long blue horns or big flounces. What an unexpected and lovely color surprise this was! Pretty nicely formed lightly ruffled big flowers that always sport their horns or flounces here. It also always gives very tall show stalks with incredible multi-branching with 9 or more perfectly spaced flowers, each with 3 or 4 open at once 2 or 3 times over. Consistently both very floriferous and extremely vigorous here, too. It hasn't rebloomed here but several of its sibs have. Extremely fertile both ways. I have loads of seedlings coming from it and am anticipating more exciting surprises. Should be a great breeder for branching out toward many new horizons. $25.00. Moonshine Gardens.
| From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: BRANCHING OUT ( '87 Byers) 38" EM-ML. Pale silvery blue-pink with orange-pink beards and long blue horns or big flounces, RIO VISTA X SKY HOOKS. What an unexpected and lovely color surprise this was! Big flowers that always sport their horns or flounces here. It also usually gives very tall show stalks with incredible multibranching with 9 or more perfectly spaced flowers each with 3 or 4 open at once 2 or 3 times over but they're often not strong enough to stand under their loads - Dang'. It's consistently both very floriferous and extremely vigorous here too. Very fertile both ways and has given its spectacular branching and lots of spectacular appendages to its seedlings and many of them have rebloomed! but like it they usually lack refinement. $ 6.50
