From AIS Bulletin #241 April 1981 Introducing FIRST HURRAH. AB (1/4), 28" (71 cm), M. Parentage: TB Fluted Haven x AB Nicosia: [Irish Touch: (lmaret x Soni Ce) x Esther, the Queen]. With this impressive arilbred influence, this attractive self of combined Indian blue (HCC 51/2) and capri blue (52/2), with reddish tangerine beard, can well be a milepost in the advancement of these fiery-colored beards into the arilbred class. Although leaning toward the TBs in appearance as to branching, foliage, height and bud count (7 average), this could prove advantageous where care and proper pod parent selection is practiced in hybridization. Limited stock. $20.00. Les Peterson.
