From Tempo Two catalog, 2015: BRING ME DIAMONDS (Blyth 2015 Aust) EM 36” Re From the first day this opened we knew this was going to be a winner coming from the lovely parent Magical. It is a sister to Diamond Broker. The standards are clear creamy-lemon, deepening slightly at the hafts. Falls are cream with a well defined application of gold across the hafts and coming down the falls to about the end of the beards. The beards are white, to soft cream and the outer ½” is tipped soft lavender. Virtually every stem is a show stem with 3 well spaced flowers out at once. It has also rebloomed for us now over 3 years in late Autumn. Great grower and very fertile. Good parent and could give plicatas if crossed with a strong plicata. A favourite here.
