From AIS Bulletin #225 Spring 1977 Introducing BABY FACE (K. Mohr '77). TB, 38". With all the charm of an adorable newborn but quite mature in form and stature, this one is distinguished in its aristocratic ancestry containing Dykes Award Medalists on both sides of the immediate family. Favoring her mother, Pink Taffeta, in blue-pink coloration, she has her own shade of heather pink glowing from the standard midribs. From her grandparents, Winter Olympics and Rippling Waters, are inherited outstanding vigor, branching, bud count (8-10), height, increase and overall charm, making her most eligible. (See picture on inside cover this Bulletin). $25.00. Mohr Gardens.
