From AIS Bulletin #305 April 1997 Introducing DESERTS RAGE - (David Miller) TB 33" EM When I was growing up, the spring winds would whip up some hellacious sand storms in our arid hometown. This TB reminds me of the results of those winds. The standards are a blend of sandy grey brown with a very slight violet infusion, while the falls are a blending of yellow hafts to sandy grey brown. Yellow beards create the eye of the storm amidst the 7 flowers. Seedling 88-IIB (Gold Galore X Copper Classic) X Sunny and Warm. $25.00. Long's Gardens.
