From AIS Bulletin #321 April 2001 Introducing BALTIC ELEGY (Stahly '01) TB, ML, 35" Medium to deep red standards, a little lighter at the base; pale yellow falls washed the color of the standards blending to solid deep red edges; bronze beards. Color pattern is that of the pollen parent done in deep red over yellow. The pod parent is a plicata seedling, and the cross produced conventional plicatas, plicata-amoenas, and this washed pattern. Plants appear to have resistance to leafspot and iris borer. The flower has excellent ruffled form and comes 7 or 8 to the stalk. The healthy foliage stands out. (GIGOLO X HAVERSHAM) X BALTIC STAR. $35.00. Harold Stahly.
