From Tempo Two catalog, 1983: BEACHGIRL (Blyth '83 Aust.) E-M-L 38" Sdlg. P49-3. We were thrilled when this lovely orange amoena first flowered and it has continued to improve over the past three seasons. The standards are white with a faint hint of pink at midribs on new flowers. Falls are orange-apricot, very smooth and strong in colour. Beards are tangerine-red. Form is ruffled and wide for its limited colour class. Branching is excellent with often 4 or 5 flowers out at once. Makes a great garden display. Also it has unlimited potential as a parent. Vigorous grower. (Champagne Snow x (Love Chant x Festive Skirt). $20.
