| From AIS Bulletin #276 January 1990 Introducing TIFFANY LASS: Tetraploid, 28", EM-EL and repeats. This exceptionalcultivar was selected in memory of Elaine Silverberg. Lovely in every way, its special features are its excellent repeat bloom and its color with dark brown tones blended with the velvety, rich blue-purple at the base of thefalls. Our handsomest repeater. T4 73/150(1) (going back 4 generations to Fourfold White and a sib of Ewen) X T1 72/86B (involving Blue Brilliant and Cambridge). $30. Seaways Gardens.
| Comment: Standards: sky blue, upright, delicately flushed with violet. Falls similar blue with blue veining, increasing depth of tone toward the throat which is small, dark brownish red-violet with gold veining. Tends to flop over in wind.
