From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2007: BAJA BOYS - TB, 38" (97 cm), Midseason-Late. The Baja surf is up and all the surfer guys head out in quest of the perfect wave. BAJA BOYS embodies that perfect wave with rolling ruffles around standards and falls. Standards are medium blue with a violet tint which is repeated in narrow rims around lovely rosy violet falls. BAJA BOYS is being used heavily in breeding to create a flower with blue standards and bands around pink falls. Stalks are tall and well branched with ample buds as would be expected from its parent Goldkist. Sdlg. K126A: Zepherina X Goldkist. Photo pg3. $50.00.
