| From AIS Bulletin #174, July 1964. Introducing PAINTED WINGS: Tom boy X ((Bali Belle x Honey Bun) x Fairday). This plicata received considerable attention at the recent 1964 A.I.S. Convention in Chicago. Many of those who saw it, said it was a new plicata pattern with its offwhite ground S. & F. The falls are heavily dotted at the haft with rich medium brown markings, lessening towards the lower edges and flaring. The California pollen parent was bred by 1Mary Ollman of Menlo Park and pollen mailed to me by air, and used on Tomboy, a deep red purple plicata. The pod from this cross gave seven different types, some being Amoenas, probably due to Fairday. Its stalk is quite heavy and 3 or 4 branches are usual. In the 30's & 40's I did considerable cross-pollenizing with plicatas, but ceased as the patterns were all of similar types. This is different and should produce interesting seedlings. Some of the stock consists of guests in gardens where seen and how many I have for sale is problematical. If interested write for price in early August for shipment in that month, special handling as usual. Richard Goodman.
