From AIS Bulletin #269 April 1988 Introducing RUBY LOCKET (Niswonger '88) SDB 7-87: Bloodstone X unknown. SDB, 15" (38 cm), mid, fertile both ways.. For some time, I have been interested in the reds and sister colors in the standard dwarf group as evidenced by Raspberry Jam, Little Annie, Little Black Belt, etc. Here is a near red with a deeper maroon area extending two-thirds of the way down the falls which I think you will find a little different in this class. The blue beards seem to emphasize the redness. $15.00. Cape Iris.
