From AIS Bulletin #277 April 1990 Introducing BLUE CHIP PINK (Niswonger '90) Sdlg. 40-87: Pink Blue Genes X 9-84: (Center Fold X Rudolph 79-05). TB, 34", Mid. This vigorous pink wih blue beards has rebloomed in the west. It comes from a long line of Nate Rudolph's pinks and Orville Fay's blues crossed in with my line of "pinks with blue beards". It forms a clump quickly with show type stalks. The pink is more of a lilac pink or blue pink as compared with its pod parent. This is a pink that is different and I think will be enjoyed for many years. It is very fertile both ways. $35.00. Cape Iris.
