Hybridizer's Comment: When the seedlings from the cross of Black's Seedling B8020 : ('Concord Touch' x 'Daisy') X 'Soft Air') bloomed, they were everything i could have hoped for. They ran the gamut from clean white ground color with sharp purple plicatea markings to cream ground with brownish markings. Many had complete bands of color completely encircling the plicata markings and so was born the 'ringed plicata'. There was one that stood out from all the rest, seedling number 824E, later to be named 'Chubby Cheeks'. It had a rather subtle grayed violet plicata band on a warm white ground. The full, fat, rounded and ruffled form was a marked advancement in form and became it's hallmark trait. It begged to be named 'Chubby Cheeks' and as we've come to know, a good name never hurts. (from MEDIANITE-Spring 2008).

  • The most important SDB ever: already 194 registrations have it mentionned in their pedigree, not included the 'second generation' ones, and the first IB ('Starwoman') ever to receive the Dykes Medal is one of it's children !
