From Keith Keppel catalog 2016 BLIND AMBITION M 38" (Silk Road X 06-156E, Friendly Advice sib). Perhaps this should be Blonde Ambition, for it is trying to be that much sought-after yellow with blue beards. It comes close, with medium light martius yellow standards atop oyster white falls narrowly banded yellow and with sulphur-suffused hafts. Beards blue on the end, remainder primrose yellow. Well-branched tall stalks carry large waved and ruffled blooms. #08-32A. $50.00.
