BEE WINGS (A. Brown '60)—-here is another that must be judged after it forms a clump. BEE WINGS has won many honors and rightfully so. Bright yellow with a wing shaped radiating spot on each side of the beard. Not only was this a blue year, it was a green year, too. The spots were a definite greenish color on flower opening, deepening to dark brown after a few hours. (Fry, 1970).
