From Windwood Gardens catalog, 2008: SWANS IN FLIGHT (2006) 33" L-VL dip. Seedling 96T11B1 (92J2A2 x Spring's Brook). Very large pure white self with a few greenish lines at throat. Graceful form with semi-pendant falls and 4½" standards. Blue-green spear foliage. A white flower is a symbol of purity, but it must also attract the eye for other reasons to justify introduction. Form and size are two such characteristics, and Swans in Flight excels in both areas. The flowers are not only very large (often approaching 6" across), but also have a powerful and rhythmical flow of line with gently undulating falls. The analogy to flying swans seems apt. Growth is strong. 1 branch with 3 buds is typical. $20.00
