From AIS Bulletin #313 April 1999 Introducing DREAMLAND (Niswonger '99) Sdlg. Sp 1-94: Sp 8 88:((Sp 6-80: (Far Out x Redwood Supreme) x Unknown)) X Firemist. Spuria, 42" (107 cm), M. Walker Ferguson earlier than 1967 when he introduced Fireplace, felt that a pink spuria possible, He also thought that the use of Fireplace in hybridization would be a possible approach. Over thirty years have passed and we havn't gotten a pink spuria but I still think its possible. Here is another step along the way that may lead to this elusive dream. This is a blend of yellow and rose with a light touch of violet, especially in the crest. The yellow signal blends out to the edges of the falls. It doesn't set seed easily but pollen is potent .$30.00. Cape Iris.
