From AIS Bulletin #265 April 1987 Introducing FIRED UP (David Sindt, 1987) Miniature Dwarf Bearded, 11cm (4-1/2"). Intriguing though brown may be, when it's fired up all eyes are upon it. Arched, domed standards shine with the light, bright redness of new copper. Golden brown falls are veined and overlaid in rich mahogany, and flare out, the better to be seen. The beards echo the purple tones where the mahogany leaves off, all to complete a satisfying composition. These blossoms form a carpet of coppery embers suitable wherever small plants are appreciated. Seedling 448: ((Snow Flurry x Nana) x Rose Elf) x Arrangement) X Copper Chief. $10.00. Adamgrove.
