From Windwood Gardens catalog, 2008: DOREEN CAMBRAY (2007) 30" M L. dip. Sdlg 02A10A6 (99L4Al 7 x Veins of Gold). 30". Diploid M-L. Sdlg. 99L4Al 7 is from Trim the Velvet x 97A5B3. Blue x yellow breeding gave sdlg. 97A5B3 but the pedigree goes back too many generations to list here. Maybe it's an unanswerable question: Is this flower blue or is it red? DC has large, flattish flowers with overlapping parts in a complex intermingling of red and blue. The falls have a blue outer rim with redder center, the standards are redder still, the stylearms are lighter red with blue keels. All the parts are strongly veined deep blue and red. A dusty gold signal brightens everything considerably. With broad spear foliage, excellent vigor, and 1-2 branches providing 4-5 buds. $30.00
