| From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2007: CLEVER - SDB, 11" (28 cm), Late. CLEVER has a very different, albeit rather subdued, applicaton of the plicata pattern. Instead of the markings being on hafts or around edges, they are washed bands over the central portions of the falls. CLEVER presents some very interesting possibilities for breeding. Form is full and round. Standards are medium yellow gold with styles being more gold. Falls have three bands of color/patterning. Circular areas around big, bright orange beards are medium gold with just a bit of orange blended in. Around this is a small band of muted, mottled, mid charcoal-violet plicata sanding giving way to a wide, muted gold band. If you're one of the smart ones, you'll be CLEVER and use this one for breeding new and unusual colors and patterns. Sdlg. TW222B: Marksman X Brash 88 $18.00.
