| From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1958: NEST EGG (Dave Childs) 12" (Crysoro X Welch H 502: Carpathia selfed) NET 3.00. Standard Dwarf Bearded. From an unusual cross, the interesting feature about this little hybrid is its fertility and the easy germination of its seed. We have had full pods on it by chamaeiris, pumila, T. B., Lilliput, and self. A beautiful color that is a bright orange yellow, slightly bitone in effect. Flowers a bit large for its height, but the flower is well above the low foliage. Both standards and falls are ruffled and very wide, but all come to a distinct point at the tips.
