From Windwood Gardens catalog, 2008: LEMON BLUSH. Sdlg. 98F2A79 (96T5Al0 [Kita-no-Seiza x Hello Yellow] x 96V2Bl0 (92G4B22: yellow seedling from Sultan's Ruby and sibs, Butter and Sugar, Superego and Anniversary x Kita-no-Seiza). 37". Diploid. L. The lightly ruffled, flaring falls open light to mid yellow fading over the next two days to a yellow central thumbprint on an ivory base. Standards and style arms are white with yellower midribs and some feathering on the style arms. 1-2 branches (typically 3-4 buds). Although very attractive, this is not really a flower advance by current standards, but year after year it has performed beautifully giving a tall, tight clump with perfect blue-green foliage and lots of flowers in a mix of ivory and yellow. So clump form, floriferousness and reliability have won the day. Another of the favorites at the 2007 Region 6 Spring meeting. Although the six-falled Kita-no-Seiza is a grandparent on both sides, the flowers show no sign of this strongly recessive trait. $35.00
