| From AIS Bulletin #273 April 1989 Introducing LINGERING MELODY- TB, EC Award 1986, HC Award 1988. Webster, on Melody: "A rhythmic succession of changing tones that make a pleasing sound." The first tone is a medium violet-blue self with short, wide, blocky petals. The second day, only the violet seems to fade over most of the petal, leaving an even prettier pale silvery sheen over a nearly blue tone, around white beards. Then rims are a bit darker, lightly laced and serrated, with pleated ruffling. Heavy substance. Sturdy 35" stalks. Three wide branches hold eight or nine buds. Sdlg. 175-6: Tiburon X Charisma. $25.00. Gaddie's Gardens.
