From AIS Bulletin #273 April 1989 Introducing GOOD FAIRY TB (Entourage x Sky Hooks) X Heather Blush. Creamy peach with tangerine b. and self horns. Very modern, well ruffled big flaring flowers and it's a good rebloomer. $30.00. Moonshine Gardens.
From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: GOOD FAIRY - 36" M. C62-100: (ENTOURAGE x SKY HOOKS) X HEATHER BLUSH. Creamy peach-pink S. ; paler flesh pink F. with deeper pink hafts; tangerine-red beards and good long horns or spoons, usually just on the spring flowers. She does grant wishes to those that dream of loveliness both fanciful and feminine in the garden both spring and fall. Sometimes she dons an orangy glow, usually it's quite pinkish, always most beautiful! Big ruffled flowers of super flaring form on sturdy show stalks with up to 12 buds each. The rebloom show usually begins in mid to late October. A super fine grower like Heather Blush. I'm sure there's no limit to the wishes she might grant to hybridizersl. $30.00.
